“Bands rarely enjoy comparisons, but if you were to take the intelligence of The Divine Comedy, the vision of John Barry, the creativity of Radiohead (circa "The Bends") and the soaring vocal talents of Scott Walker you wouldn't be far away. And that can't be bad, can it?”
Combining both musical talent and imagination to create a sound that is innovative, unique, and as a result, totally unclassifiable as the bold city of Aberdeen they call home.
