Collectively, they are as much a throwback to the timeless appeal of doo-wop and Motown as they are to modern day R&B and pop.
Since its release, the band's debut album Good Ol’ Fashioned Love, has gone platinum, reaching number 4 in the UK album chart; a feat largely achieved not through a massive advertising campaign but rather word-of-mouth. You can't listen to it without tapping your feet and, as Lachlan 'Lachie' Chapman, the Australian, puts it: "It puts a smile on your face, and a bit of sunshine into your day."
Though it is still just early days for the band, they are anything but an overnight success, and theirs is a tale of genuine inspiration - of mettle tested, tenacity exerted, and of the benefits that ultimately come from possessing one hell of a stubborn streak.
Despite being fans of modern-day rock and pop, their enduring love of the songs their parents grew up on was overriding, and they believed it would prove similarly irresistible to mainstream audiences today. In many ways, they were ahead of their time in their thinking, because over the next few years, artists like Michael Buble, and theatre productions like Jersey Boys, would prove them right - that vintage sounds were timeless sounds.
Having signed a record contract, they went into the studio to record their debut album which features not only cover versions - Billy Joel's The Longest Time, The Darts' Come Back My Love - alongside their own compositions - Gambling Man, Carolyn - that hint at a similarly timeless appeal.
Released in November 2010, it proved an instant steady seller and then, over Christmas, they started to perform on television. The medium suited them as it does anyone who can really sing, and before long they were fielding countless offers from more TV shows and radio stations. The album became one of the season's biggest sellers and, against expectation, it continued to sell well into the New Year and beyond, and to an increasingly broad demographic as well, the band now appealing to old and young alike, to throwbacks and trendsetters and the album entered the Top 20.
An appearance on the ITV show Dancing On Ice, which saw the group becoming the house-band for the entire programme, exposed them to more than 8 million viewers. The result? The album shot up the charts settling at number 4. Subsequent performances on day time television led to the album becoming a frequent resident in the top 10.
They are already looking towards their second album which will feature more classic reinterpretations and much more original material. And next, they want to launch themselves upon the rest of the world.
