010, directed by nothing but their excellent record collections and the vague intention to 'not be boring'. while guitarist jack and keyboardist dan had played in bands before, drummer sean hadn't seriously picked up a stick since winging grade-one snare drum aged 13. inspired by sean's intuitive naivety, the trio were keen to avoid the familiar routes ploughed by other bands and set forth a working manifesto that saw them reject predictable bass guitars, minor chord progressions, drum fills and programming. having released a few early songs and an assortment of sympathetic remixes via bandcamp to not a little online attention, they retreated to the practice room where they wrote ten new songs, in between jamming the odd indulgent whitney houston cover (rumours of a reworking of her debut album from memory remain unsubstantiated). those ten songs will see the light of day in spring 2011 as cymbals first album, released through tough love records. the sound of anthemic naivete pushed through the eye of a needle.
