With little in the way of publicity, this Ottawa-based trio-cum-quartet have steadily impressed both fans and industry people alike with a style best described as "shoegazing Brit-pop." The band formed in 1999 and rehearsed in an Ottawa apartment. The trio of guitarists Derek Ma, Myles Bartlett, and Shayne Cox released an independent EP before performing in and around the Toronto area. Some showcases resulted in the band being signed in September 2001 to Grenadine Records, who released .02, the group's debut album. The group is scheduled to return to the studio for a release in the summer of 2002.
