Extensive touring soon followed leading them to clubs and festivals throughout Croatia and the whole region, with a sold out show in Rijeka's cult club „Palach“ and slots at some of the most prestigious and biggest festivals like the INmusic festival, Indirekt festival and many more.

In mid 2017. they opened for band Wovenhand in Rijeka and later that year performed on Waves Vienna and Budapest showcase festivals, some of the biggest music showcase festivals in Europe. Their new EP after Dark was released on January 8th 2018.

In 2018. They became a part of Europavox that is entirely dedicated to the promotion of European Musical Diversity.

The group consists of Jakov Katalinić (vocal, guitar), Leo Ventin (vocal, guitar), Kruno Kukuljan (bass) and Ivan Ritoša (drums). The band's sound is reminiscent of and rooted in garage rock with influences from neopsychedelia and noise pop bands of late 80's and 90's. Lyrics are inspired by personal stories from the city, with its protagonists living against a backdrop of rock, poetry and nightlife. Rejecting the standard narrative values, the lyrics also deal with themes of social status, isolation, exploration and achieving personal freedom.
