The Australian indie rock band, now a five piece make their American debut under a partnership between indie giants Glassnote and major label powers Columbia Records with their self titled release, due out June 5th.  The band’s first single “Need Your Love” showcases the band’s eclectic mix, a Prince meets Radiohead type feel.  The music video to “Need Your Love” was directed by Dugan O’Neal in Los Angeles, the video is a take on the age old themes of love, loss and finding friendship where you least expect it.  The band’s new self-titled release was recorded in Los Angeles with producer Tony Hoffer (M83, Beck, Phoenix).
