Their songs "The Darkest Side" and "Blood" came in at number 87 and 64, respectively, on the Australian Triple J Hottest 100 in 2009. Their song "Blood" is also featured in the films Accidents Happen, It's Kind of a Funny Story, and Crazy, Stupid, Love, as well as an episode of the Australian television comedy-drama series Offspring, a TV commercial for the European bank BNP Paribas, and in the trailer for the film Jeff, Who Lives at Home.
