Mauro and drummer Onyee started writing tunes in that vein as early as 2004. They called their outfit Sunny Day Sets Fire (taken from an Internet band name generator) and began releasing some meticulously crafted pop singles. As the duo gained momentum they added bassist Ed and multi-instrumentalist Max, and soon they were boasting a roster of members from Italy, Hong Kong, Sardinia, England, and Canada. Making East London their home base, Sunny Day Sets Fire released their self-titled debut EP in 2007 and spent the remainder of the year in the studio, working on their first full-length, Summer Palace, issued in 2008.
