“These guys kinda came outta nowhere to me. I love the early '80s angular guitars mixed in with the dark synth lines. Both Cameron and Sarah's voices play a perfect contrast to each other. They only made 300 copies of their EP on vinyl and I think you'll be bummed if you miss out. If they keep up all their hard work, they will be primed to break out in 2011.”
