about

"This massively underrated Brisbane quartet continue to craft their brilliantly off-kilter art-synth-funk-pop in their own bathysphere on Achievement, untainted by midlife trials and mainstream trends.
From the Graney-attitude funk of No Idea Is The New Idea, the mischievous-yet-dark faux-disco melter, Girl On A Lilo, to the Dunedin rush of Goodyear Blimp, Ian Powne and co. succeed in marking out their own world, one that is garish, knowing, self-deprecating and absurdly laconic. When song titles like Sylvia Plath and White Funk?? can stand beside each other, you know you’re staring mad genius in the face." - Brendan Telford (the music.com.au)
