In those early days, the three would get together and discuss songs and ideas for a sound, finding particular inspiration in an old YouTube video of Stevie Nicks singing Wild Heart, backstage in her make-up chair. They decided to write four songs each and bring them together to make an album. Arrangements were worked out together and, in many cases, they ended up singing each other’s songs. They recorded their self-titled debut in New York, with Jim White (Dirty Three) on drums and Victor Van Vugt (PJ Harvey, Nick Cave) engineering. The record came out in 2011: it debuted at #3 on the ARIA chart and achieved gold accreditation.
