Valentin and Fabian were on a semester abroad in Madrid when they started writing their first songs. Both had difficulties adjusting to the boiling heat of the city and both suffered from psychosocial changes, caused by growing-up. Transforming their emotional chaos into psycho-pop songs was the logical thing to do.
