The band came about after Charles F recorded a number of synth pop songs as a break from the guitar rock he was making with the Quebec City band Lady Grey. The songs were not meant for release as an album or for a permanent band, but simply as a fun project to post to his Myspace page — however, he decided to put the band together after getting positive feedback. Their first release, the EP Let Me Drive, was initially distributed solely by throwing copies into the audience at their live shows, but was later released on Paper Bag Records and iTunes, where the title track was featured as a Single of the Week.
The band followed up with their full-length debut album, About a Girl, in 2008.
