It started their romantic relationship with Chapter Information and with maker Mikey Youthful of Total Control and Eddy Current Suppression Band. Edwards and McKay had written a lot of the tracks on Arks Up, but on the 1st full-length album, the complete band chipped along with composing and singing. Documented in an older homestead in Large Nation, Victoria, New Begin Again premiered in 2011 and noticed Dick Diver building for the Australian pursuing their EP got garnered, while sending their audio out to the globe.
