The two started up a band after several failed attempts with others. The young band got several early gigs at the Sansoucci House in Midtown. Whose Army? has been described as passionate and energetic, especially live. Their influences include Radiohead, the Pixies, and a plethora of bands in the current and past Memphis scene.
The band's lyrics and music are written mainly by Anthony and Moore, though other members occasionally contribute. Their sound is described by one Memphis blogger as "material of quality one would expect from a well seasoned song writer". The band has been hailed for their sensitive dynamics and peculiarly pleasing tones. So far, Whose Army? has put out 4 demos featuring 5 songs each, and one full-length album containing 12 songs.
