The musical group was founded in 2018. The acquaintance of future colleagues was interesting - Andrei approached Jeffrey on the street to offer a barter to learn languages. He wanted to improve his English and help his new friend with learning Ukrainian. The new acquaintances turned out to have a lot in common. They both studied at the faculty of pharmaceutics and couldn't live a day without music.
Joint work of the future winners of the National Selection began in 2017, when the first two songs were released. A year later, the guys recorded their debut album, "The Parts," which included 13 songs. After that, Andrew and Jeffrey began positioning themselves as musicians.
