The band got its first big break in the BRU Rock Hunt, an annual Battle of the Bands run by Providence commercial alternative/indie rock station 95.5 WBRU.
They have an uncanny ability to blend rock - from new wave to progressive - with ska, punk balladry, and a bit of baroque into something highly original. Miller's direct and personal songwriting derives from an unquestionable pop sensibility, while the band's sophisticated arrangements and intricate instrumentals give their songs an expansive and psychedelic edge. The band further distinguishes itself by using the electric violin as a lead instrument. Described by The Village Voice as "a cross between Eddie Van Halen and Papa John Creach," violinist Spencer Swain adds swirling textures and searing melodies that range from the pretty to the profane.
Members of the band include Eli Miller (Vocals/Guitar), John Zox (Drums/Percussion), Spencer Swain (Violin/Vocals), and Dan Edinberg (Bass/Vocals/Keys). Former members include Eli Batalion.
Currently, the band has produced three albums: Take Me Home which was released by Armo Records in 2003, The Wait which was released by SideOneDummy Records in 2006 and Line in the Sand which was released by SideOneDummy Records in 2008. The band quietly disbanded in 2009, reuniting for concerts at Lupo's in their hometown of Providence in August 2011 and October 2014.

- LyricsGive me just a little more time,
Maybe we will
Find the words that will change our minds.
Oh, give me just a little more time.
Give me just a little more time,
- LyricsThere are no lyrics to Canon...it's just music!
- LyricsThe evening smolders into night
Turn up the music and i'll drive into the city lights
The wind is on your face
I'm blowing kisses down from outer space
Baby won't you be
- LyricsDrive into the sky until it turns the afternoon black.
Halfway across the state on the day we set the clocks back.
And I don't know where I'm going.
I follow broken yellow lines.
And I hope this open road can read my broken mind.
- LyricsI tried little butterfly not to hurt you
So I guess that this might come as some surprise
I'm gonna take this train even though I never thought I'd desert you now
I've got a ticket and I'm just biding my time
'Cause I don't really want to work it out
