They have worked with many artists and orchestras over the years but in August 2010 they met up with Vincent Moon on an island off the Danish coast. Over 4 days they collaborated with over 200 local musicians, kids and parents, creating new performances and interpretations of songs from their album Magic Chairs all filmed by Vincent Moon.

Vincent Moon is a French independent filmaker renowned for his work with cinema and music and has worked with artists such as Arcade Fire, R.E.M and Tom Jones. He has filmed over 100 "Take-Away Shows" of artists and bands performing in various locations.

"An Island is an unconventional music performance film and an abstract documentary about a band and an island."

The film was premiered on 1st February 2011 around the world including over 500 free Private-Public Screenings.
