We say:

This Wellington electro-punk band of merry young men blazed a trail through the underground from 2005, while building a strong fanbase – confirmed by their incendiary sets opening for CSS in 2007.

    "Palmerston North-born Grayson Gilmour is a classically trained pianist who released his first solo recording at age 16. After moving to Wellington he became a founding member of electro indie-rockers So So Modern. While touring the world with them he has continued to release solo material that is less abrasive and veers more towards pop classicism with its multi-tracked harmonies and swirling arrangements. In 2010 he became the first new artist on the relaunched Flying Nun label with the release of his fifth solo album No Constellation." (NZ On Screen summary)
