The band formed as six guys who all come from a variety of different musical influences (everything from August Burns Red, Poison the Well, Alexisonfire, Circa Survive to Herbie Hancock, Saves The Day, Bjork) with a desire to create something fresh and different in the heavy music scene. The result has caused quite a stir in the underground with a style of music that fuses hardcore rock melody to create a sound that could be best described as progressive post-hardcore.

Alan Abrahams AKA Portable AKA Bodycode has been in motion his whole life—growing up in South Africa, coming of age in London, decamping to Berlin and finally settling in Lisbon—and his deeply syncopated brand of electronic dance music has evolved with every step of the journey. His formative years were spent in an impoverished Cape Town township ironically tagged “Beverly Hills”, and to the backbeat of the first wave of Chicago house records he emerged out of the ruins of a post-apartheid South Africa. Inspired musically, yet frustrated geographically, he relocated to London in 1997.
