Felder, Heringer and McMurtrie first joined forces tearing tickets at a movie theater in Brookline, Massachusetts. They began writing and playing music together a few years later while sharing a loft in Queens, New York. In 2008, Peng joined the group, and all four of them drove to Maine, piled what equipment they could into a small boat, and spent a few days recording on an island in Cobbosseecontee lake. The results became the bulk of their first album, Glitter Tracks.
