We signed these geniuses from Milwaukee – this is their first ever release on a UK label!
These guys have worked their way up to near-legendary status in their home town and just played the support slot for Flaming Lips at Summerfest (ginormous US music festival).
Releases on Brooklyn’s Uninhabitable Mansions and their own Kribber Krown imprint, the latter mastered by Grammy-nominated Emily Lazar, brought serious interest from the UK; we ended up flying out to Wisconsin to convince the band to sign on the dotted line.
On :0) [aka Clown Nose Cliché Alien and Rainbow Gradient Smiley EP] they introduce us to their new social media coordinator 'beans' in between playing four excellent tracks.
With two drummers, an extraordinary, freewheeling sense of melody, and up to four moustaches at any given point in time, they surely check every box for lovers of indie pop.
