The band’s origin can be traced back from the burgeoning shoegaze scene of the recent years. Gerard (guitar) and Emer (vocals/guitar) met and played together in a shoegaze band called Stellar Spectre, fronted by indie luminary Xavier Emas (Sunday Picnic Love Affair, Cinema Lumiere). Emer knew X from the indie pop happenings of the early 2000s, having been played in a band called radiomanila, while Gerard and X were coworkers. They played a couple of gigs and were on a momentum of sort, until X had to migrate, leaving the band without a front man.
Gerard suggested to continue and play the songs Emer wrote, thus a new band was born. Gerard also recruited his life-long friend Ron on bass, whom he also played with, in a band called Iris PH. They played a couple of gigs in and around the South, until the pandemic struck and forced everything to a halt.
