Back then they were just five friends - names and identities, for the time being, are not important - from New Zealand, each of whom had been working in different strands of New Zealand’s music industry as writers and producers, and each of whom had a yearning to do something a little different, something fresh.

The project they started in rural splendor at the bottom of the world now looks set to take them global. If their expectations had initially been small, their horizon is now adjusting accordingly.
