4 stars I am going to be generous with my rating for this one, as I think this band have huge potential for the future and I do think there is more depth to this album than first appears. They have very clear melodic influences via the Beatles and ELO with the vocal influence of the Beach Boys. In modern vocal terms they bear similarities to their countrymen Moon Safari, who are also clearly influenced by Beach Boy-esque harmonies. At times it sounds almost psychedelic. It is, all in all, a charming album. 'Fear of Clouds' is an outstanding song and the rest of the album has a very laid back and sometimes nostalgic feel to it. It's definitely another one of those albums that the more you listen to it the better it gets. There is more to this than meets the eye and I hope to see a new album of even better material in the near-future!

In October 2011, they released a single concept track, more than ten minutes in length, called Circadian Rhythm. It shows clear progression of their talents and, again, is a charming track full of warmth. This is a very likeable band and they deserve a lot more recognition than they currently have. With one killer album, they could certainly break into a wider market, as their countrymen Moon Safari are beginning to. I wish them all the best of luck!
