Their rise to fame began after posting their first single 'Afterthoughts' online - and unbelievably almost immediately received interest from Universal Records, Sony, Emeli Sandé's management and Warner Brothers, all asking who their record label was.

The Killarney duo have previously been called 'The best band to come out of Kerry' by The Irish Times and have performed live at some of the biggest festivals in the world such as Reading and Leeds Festival, the Isle of Wight Festival, Download Festival, Rock Am Ring and have supported The Coronas at the INEC Arena.

“It’s been a crazy few weeks seeing our songs reach over a million views on TikTok," guitarist Paul O'Sullivan told the Killarney Advertiser.

"Seeing so many new people from all over the world discovering our music means so much to us.”
