They've also played to an estimated worldwide listening audience of 200 million on the 'Mountain Stage Radio' show based in West Virginia. The Sydney Morning Herald recognized the band's essential eclecticism, terming their music "delicious folk-pop...tinged at times with sweet gospel soul, before plunging into raucous guitar riffs" and "exuberant, sad, wise, harmonically dazzling...a lively display of both instrumental and a cappella with attitude and polished pop." "This acoustic duo from Melbourne have been winning rave reviews.... they write powerful radio-friendly tunes and twist them with a quirkiness which keeps them outside formula pop." Lesley Sly of ROLLING STONE An immensely entertaining and engaging live show has been the hallmark of their success, garnering them such praise as "the best night you've ever had" with "glorious harmony work and individual voices ranging from teardrop soft to thunderstorm forceful"- Geoff Wilson SCENE magazine.
