Formed in 2011 when Salter and Dalton joined Chapman's existing solo project The Mighty Northumberland, the band released its debut album Whine of the Mystic independently in 2014. The album was rereleased in 2015 on You've Changed Records in Canada and Paradise of Bachelors in the United States.
The band's second album, Thought Rock Fish Scale, with songs delivered in a slow, psychadelic and meditative style, was released in 2016 on both labels. The album was supported by a concert tour of dates in both Canada and the United States, an appearance on CBC Radio's Q and a follow-up tour of select dates in Europe. In June 2016, the album was named to the longlist for the 2016 Polaris Music Prize.
