The band was essentially masterminded by multi-instrumentalist Trey Many of His Name Is Alive and Liquorice. Warren Defever (also of HNIA) helped with production. The band's 4AD Records-influenced sound often led to comparisons to artists such as Cocteau Twins, Low, and Slowdive. Amon Krist was the vocalist on the group's 1995 cassette The Rainwater EP and their Tooth & Nail Records debut Fall Sounds.
She also sang on Tooth & Nail Records's re-release of their debut cassette on CD, called Songs from the Rainwater EP, after which point she left the group. The second album Of Color Bright used three new vocalists: Tess Wiley of Sixpence None the Richer, Sydney Rentz of Morella's Forest and Karin Oliver, also of His Name Is Alive. The band then went on hiatus. They self-released an EP in 1999 featuring Rosie Thomas (singer-songwriter) and Trey Many on vocals.
The band played a few more shows and short tours until their last appearance at The Blind Pig in Ann Arbor on October 16, 2000. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
