In early 2009 the band were signed to Columbia Records and are due to release their debut album In Search of Elusive Little Comets the end of this month.

On 9 February 2009, the band released their debut single, "One Night in October” as both a digital download and a vinyl. The single received praise from BBC Radio 1 DJs Huw Stephens, Zane Lowe and Sara Cox, all of whom played the song on their respective shows.

Having signed with Columbia Records during 2008, the band then proceeded to releasing their second single, "Adultery", which was released on 26 October 2009. The band began promotion of the single through touring as a support for bands such as Hockey, The Twang and The Noisettes.
