    "In early 2015 they recorded “Sonic-Shaped Life”, their debut album. It was put down on tape at Oporto’s renewed studio Sá da Bandeira by Cláudio Tavares and João Brandão, and mastered by Miguel Pinheiro Marques at SDB Mastering. Leading single ‘You Should Have Switches’, released in September, gave the first clues about their own brand of hypnotic rock, where pulsating psychedelia, droney garage and shimmering, trippy pop provide the setting for haunting compositions, catchy hooks and engaging melodies. Over the course of ten tracks, the band sounds commanding in the darker passages or punked-up outbursts and shine in the more sunny, coloured moments, while the flow and pace of the album produce a wholly entrancing record."
