Thank you for letting us use your equipment for the speeches and for playing music between your sets.
Please pass on my thanks to the other band members. The band took the trouble to find exactly the right "first dance" we had requested and also included everything that we had specially asked for.
is 43 minutes of powerhouse aural magic that pays homage to early 90s dance pop.
The band have credited their influences to 90s hit-makers Black Box, Corona, and Ace of Base, among others.
This album saw male vocalist Anders take a backseat, while Stine’s mighty lungs gave their all, injecting power and spunk to every tune she belted out.
