Twin sisters who were discovered by Platinum Blonde's management team of Tony Tsavdaris and Bruce Barrow who did backing vocals for Platinum Blonde and Paris Black among others.

They were signed to RCA Records and their self-titled debut was released in 1987. The album was produced by Bruce Barrow & Blackwell at Phase One Studios and mixed by Mark S. Berry. Guest musicians included Sascha (drummer for Platinum Blonde), Claude Desjardins (drums), David Bendeth (guitar), Rich Chycki (guitar), Lou Pomanti (keyboards), Paul Markel (keyboards), Bruce Barrow (bass), Dave McLaughlin (bass). All the songs were written or co-written by the sisters except the cover version of Chic's "Le Freak". The album spawned a sizeable dance hit with the song "Stay With Me".

The group moved to CBS for the 1989 follow-up album 'Secrets In The Dark' produced at Metalworks by the TBA management team with Claude Desjardin. Guests included Rich Chycki, Sergio Galli (Platinum Blonde), Lou Pomanti, and Steve Sexton (Exchange).
