10th Anniversary Deluxe Vinyl!
2020 marks an historic milestone for them: on October 1st, they celebrate the 10th anniversary of the release of their debut eponymous LP, an album rooted in disco and classic synth-pop that immediately resonated with listeners across Australia and beyond. It successfully built upon the band’s already impressive reputation as one of Australia’s most sought-after electronic acts, well renowned for frequenting the legendary club scene in mid-2000s Sydney.
‘Bag Raiders’ debuted at number 7 on the ARIA Australian Albums Chart, was nominated for Best Dance Release at the 2011 Aria Awards and was nominated for Australian Album of The Year at the j awards. The key singles were very well received, too. ‘Shooting Stars’ came in at #19 in triple j’s Hottest 100 of 2009 and reached #38 on the ARIA charts; ‘Way Back Home’ came in at #46 in the Hottest 100 of 2010; ‘Sunlight’ received extensive airplay in Germany.
The album also reached #36 in the Top Albums Chart in Germany and, after ‘Shooting Stars’ re-emerged as a hit in 2017, it reached #11 on the Billboard Electronic charts and entered the charts in Austria, Germany, Canada and France.
Since release, the band have received 32 Platinum records, 7 Gold records, and have accumulated more than 3 billion streams, cementing their status as a truly global band who’ve reached heights that most only dream of.
