The band first got their start in 2013 and gained popularity in their native Belgium before being invited to open for Vampire Weekend, The War on Drugs as well as tour the UK with The Lemonheads.

“The girl on the (album) cover is the niece of photographer Boris Bruegel,” singer Karolien Van Reensbeck said in a statement. “The image already existed, but as soon as I saw it I was sold. She is small and vulnerable but at the same time she is looking into the camera with anger and determination. Combativeness too. I recognise myself in that. This one photo summarises the content of the record perfectly.”
