Originally called the Ladies and Gentlemen, Little Sins were primarily a solo project for Thomas d’Arcy, conceived in an effort to guide him back again to the music he really wished to write after his old group, the Carnations, split up. D’Arcy, who documented the songs in a variety of places throughout Toronto on the span of the year, also performed a lot of the tools on the recording. The Girls and Gentlemen — who tour like a music group (Todor Kobakov and Kevin Hilliard on secrets, Steve Krecklo on acoustic guitar, and Brent Follett on drums, the majority of whom also produced appearances for the record itself) and perform in solid white clothes — released their debut recording, Little Sins, in 2005. After an effective displaying at SXSW, Astralwerks authorized the music group, who then got to improve their name because of copyright problems. They chosen Little Sins, and their right now self-titled recording strike U.S. dirt (and was “re-released” in Canada) in 2006, and the following yr, their sophomore work, Mood Swings, arrived.
