Forming in Toronto in 2001, the duo gained significant attention with their debut album, "You're a Woman, I'm a Machine," released in 2004 and critically regarded for its aggressive yet danceable sound, characterized by Keeler's heavy bass lines and Grainger's dynamic drumming and vocals. 

The duo were considered one of the leaders of the growing dancepunk movement of the early ‘00s, alongside the likes of LCD Soundsystem, !!! (Chk Chk Chk) and The Rapture. However, tension between the members led to a hiatus in 2006.

Thankfully, five years later, the duo got back together and released their second studio album, “The Physical World" in 2014, with their most recent album “Is 4 Lovers” released in 2021.
