In 2016 the band entered the studio to record their debut eponymous album.

A festive EP Sleigh Another Day then followed in 2018, complete with a parody video of a classic East 17 ballad.

2019 sees the band present a series of ‘re-imagined’ shows at their Brixton Blues Kitchen residency – performing iconic albums front-to-back in their entirety. So far the series has included complete covers of The Strokes debut Is This It and Arctic Monkeys’ Mercury Prize-winning Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not.
