The debut album features the heavily playlisted single "Landslide", summer jam "I Wonder", and #1 single "Hide Your Love".

The members are vocal about the causes they support, such as their volunteer work with Rock Camp Montreal. “We didn’t have this kind of empowerment growing up, so if we have a platform to do good and inspire the next generation to play music and write songs, and help bring back bands, we’re going to do it;” shares the band.

“What makes this trio so compelling is their focus on pulling in (and reinventing) the pop forebearers of the past, present, and future.” - Beatroute
“The indie pop trio play like rock stars mixing cool 80s, dance, and alt-pop, and almost always rip a good cover song or two in their own fashion.” - APT 613
“Canadian outfit preview their new album with this smooth and sensual Little Dragon-inspired groove” - Mystic Sons
“This is one show you definitely don’t want to miss!” - Indie 88
"Electro-pop with retro sounds is an easy description for this, but the best old-school trait is the hard-earned quality in the songwriting, each track offering substance plus hooks. There's still room for a little dance floor euphoria too, "Landslide" just a joy start to finish. This is a band to love." - Top 100 Canadian
