Haha, we made an end of year list! #7 in Saam Das' (Faded Glamour) Top 10 of 2014
Our "Dive" EP got a REALLY good write-up from @EXPLDSYNDR
Thanks to Faded Glamour for writing about our new Janna Pelle remix And thanks to them for hosting the hookup in the first place, had so much fun working on this remix and working with Janna, been a good few months for us!
Another fancy little write up from a friendly old blogger (what?). Nice to see some people like our stuff cockle-warming!
For all the Sunday comedowners, this remix we did of Janna Pelle's "Living a Lie" might enervate and elevate. Or, you might just like how it sounds. Either way, worth a bang right?

And let us know what you think
Still amazing the niche kind of stuff you can find on the internet. Here's a radio station called "SF 10-33" which mixes ambient electronic music with verbed-out San Fransisco public safety (fire and police) radio traffic. PROPER hypnotic.
2 days shy of a month since "Dive" came out...and in that time, we've had a good few write-ups which are pretty uniformly positive (and a few more to come if all goes to plan), our total soundcloud plays have been bumped up to over 3,500 (not inc. 450 plays from our embed on Faded Glamour blog), we've been downloaded from all over the world, had some really positive interest encouragement and support from Tree Machine Records, and Andrew W.K. himself gave us the thumbs up and called us "party".

Realsoundsok asked us some questions (Q's) and we provided some answers (A's) - it's a Q&A feature (which stands for Questions and Answers)! Have a look at:
Welly welly well well... looks like Andrew WK himself has heard our cover of I GET WET! He tweeted us a couple of times saying:
"Thanks so much for making such an awesome and creative and unexpected cover version of "I GET WET"!!! You guys are very party!!!"...
"HOLY COW... Check out this glitched up heavy electro cover version of my "I Get Wet" song by @b__o__x! LISTEN: http://www.fadedglamour.co.uk/…/download-boxboxbox-i-get-we… … #PARTY"
Arise, boxboxbox, knight of partying!
Faded Glamour have reviewed our "Dive" EP with a focus on our cover of I Get Wet - we can now officially say that the EP is "a mesmerising collection of electronica" and that IGW is "tremendous" and "ethereal" with Helen's vocals providing "a sense of wide-eyed wonder". Gotta be happy with that, aye?
