A deal with Modular/Island Recordings followed soon after and in July 2007 Fantastic Playroom, the group's debut album was released to wide critical acclaim going on to gain them a coveted Mercury Music Prize nomination later that year.
After touring extensively around the world the band took time off to write their second album The Optimist. Released in 2010 on their own label The Numbers, it was hugely ambitious and accomplished album spawning singles Lost A Girl, Chaos and We Want To.
