He was also joined by other ex A.K.A Weave members James Portas & DJ Poss. Mick Shiner from PureGroove recordings/679 who also worked with both The Streets, The Longcut & Plan B was responsible for helping KAV shape the bands early sound and influencing him to ditch a more rock n' roll based sound. Mick Shiner released a white label 12/inch vinyl record, which started causing a huge buzz around the London music scene. The band played their first live gig in June 2005 at Revolution Vodka bar in Leicester. Sonic Audio had been causing a lot of excitement in the UK industry & were then booked to play twice at Glastonbury Music Festival 2005. Firstly playing between The Rakes & British Sea Power on the Leftfield Stage. They were also joined on stage for a version of The Stone's Jumpin Jack Flash by surprise guest Shaun Ryder from Happy Mondays for what was said to be one of the best collaborations of the festival. They were also asked to play Creation Records boss Alan McGee's Poptones stage late on the last day of the festival, replacing ex- Libertines guitarist Carl Barat.
The band followed a successful Glastonbury Festival with a UK tour including a headline show at London's Marquee Club. Soon after Sonic Audio started to record their EP at EMI Records Studios in London. The material was never released as member's KAV, Jon Dunn & Mikey Shine were asked to commit the next few years to recording & touring a new Happy Mondays album. The band split in 2006.
