Siblings Neil and Martha Weir formed the band (under the name the Shut-Ins) in 2003 in Minneapolis with a drum machine. They cut five demos, and began playing shows in the Twin Cities. The demo was well received by 770 Radio K who asked the band to perform a live in-studio session. Shortly there after the band began playing with a live drummer, Colin Johnson.
