The Checks highly anticipated debut album 'Hunting Whales' ,released 2007. Since forming at the age of fifteen The Checks have had a meteoric rise, their bluesy, age-defying garage rock racket winning them fans as illustrious as REM's Michael Stipe, and bagging them a 2005 New Zealand Music Award after just one 7" single! While in London the Checks were described as "Full of dirty slinky rhythm and blues rock" by Rolling Stone and one of "The two best bands in Britain" by Noel Gallagher (the other being Kasabian).
