Our Story:

Over the pandemic we started writing and passing ideas back and forth from the US to Lima, Peru. After a few online writing sessions, Holly and Fred flew to Lima, Peru to record two songs with Cesar. When the songs were finished they produced accompanying music and lyric videos which quickly gained attention.

A few months later they signed with Rock Avenue Records USA, and returned to Lima to finish the record. When the record was released in late March '23, they signed with Atomic Music Group (Booking Agency).

Since then they have been playing shows on the West Coast and have plans to play all over the US, while also returning for a tour in Peru at the end of 2023.

Their newest release is the music video for their song Bad Friend from their debut self - titled record. Watch it below!

About the album:

On the album's cover we see a 4th density planet with its own consciousness, sending one of their UFO vessels to our galaxy to make contact with Earth and study the evolution of its inhabitants, powered by an ancient skull.

Having endured the tortuous existence of being a human stuck on Planet Earth, they have now re-emerged into a new world... rebellious… confused...ready to break any chain.
