On stage, the group is fronted by Jackie (aka Girl), an incredibly charismatic and powerful singer.

GTM Reviews

'A new sound contrasting their female singers 'candy voice against her edgy electronic-rock band of boys. With their globally recognizable visual art show performance and (topical) lyrics...we were touched to receive them all the way from Toronto, Canada'
- Capricho magazine Brazil

'To refer to them simply as a "band" would be doing them a serious disservice.'
- McLuhan Festival

'There's a spacy, sci-fi edge to their sound - Broadcast, Laika or Portishead with more international flavor.'
- The Ottawa Sun

'All four members add up to sonic enlightenment through slamming jackhammer aural'
- Dayjob Magazine

'Anyone who enjoys Bjork when she's fun, or Gwen when she's not a sell-out, should come to this show.'
