Rob Pollard & Olly Wakeford, the duo behind this rich, swirling musical pageant, met in the mid-1990s. Classically trained, Olly studied piano and flute at the Royal College of Music. Rob had a spell as singer-songwriter type before taking up the bass. Both then played together in various indie-rock bands.

Their ambition was to make the kind of record that they would personally want to hear, and there appears to be a growing crowrd that already agrees. Produced by the same dude who did Doves and Jon Hopkins albums etc.
