After the warm reception of songs such as 'Perfect', 'Kick' and 'Hold Tight', the duo played a number of Sydney shows, supporting bands such as Snakadaktal and Northeast Party House. In 2013, the band were were flown to Manila, Philippines to play Wanderland Festival alongside Temper Trap, Neon Trees and Nada Surf. After the success of this trip, Colour Coding remained in the Magic FM Top 30 chart for several weeks and reached the #1 position on Astroplus' International Chart and #2 position overall for album sales in The Philippines. Working with producer Jean-Paul Fung (Last Dinosaurs, Bluejuice, Glass Towers), the boys recorded a double A-side single for their sophomore release, comprising of singles 'Yours, Not Mine' and 'Hanging On'.
