Single Allez Allez showed commercial potential, and following indie mini album African Queen the group signed with Virgin. Promises was produced by Martyn Ware of Heaven 17/Human League, and was released in November 1982. The album and singles were not mainstream hits, and Sarah left the band for a marriage with Heaven 17 singer Glenn Gregory.
She was replaced by singer Jackie Irwin from New York, but this didn't work out.
Bass player Marka later found fame as a singer in the French speaking part of the world.
