They've been building buzz over in the UK, so I can only assume they'll hit North American shores soon enough, brought in - no doubt - on a label by the likes of Vice Recordings, Dim Mak, or Kemado.
Here is the free EP in it's entirety -- the Electric Cafe rework will make it onto my next mix. I'm not a fan of Electric Cafe's usual output (which includes some big-name remix jobs), but he had a great starting point here. Search the archives for another Love Ends Disaster! MP3 from a few weeks ago:

About six months ago I was working as a producer on a music video for a fairly well-known band. I co-ordinated a series of meetings, along with a few proof of concept shoots, which were sent back and forth as we nailed down the look. I then left the rest up to the director, his production guy (a good friend of mine, who I was doing this as a favour for), and the musicians. Guess what? The whole thing turned into a huge mess, with the band hitting overblown-ego mode, and sending comical emails about who's in charge and how seriously they take their carefully manicured image. They displayed an absolute lack of understanding for the creative process; you gotta work together. This had the potential to be a stunning piece, but they were too busy playing rockstar to figure that out.
Bottom line is the video was never done, and my take on these guys - which wasn't super hot before the bullshit - was irreparably damaged. Really, who wants to work with people like that? Artists are difficult to begin with; throw in a messiah complex, and you have the makings of a real collaborative nightmare (unless you're in, you know? Like... in).
Creative projects are good fun -- working with others should result in an end-product borne out of a mutual respect and understanding (of course, with some disagreements thrown in for excitement). Never again will I subject myself to a blind date like that.
On a related note, what is it about me and some of my straight, 30-ish male friends that seems to draw out the early-20-year-old girls? God, don't answer that. I'm just saying...
