Soon after being forming, the group started working on their debut album which includes contributions from producers Steve Mac, Guy Chambers, and Taio Cruz. Their debut single, "All Time Low", produced by Steve Mac, was released in the summer of 2010. Upon its first week of release, the song debuted at number one in the UK.
