Theo Hutchcraft and Adam Anderson meet in a Manchester nightclub in 2005. During this drunken evening, they get to know each other and talk about music, realizing that they have a lot in common. From then on, the two young men decide to form a group. For a few months, they exchanged music and songs via e-mails, before forming the band Bureau in March 2006. They then signed at the High Voltage Sounds label and made their first double single After Midnight / Dollhouse in November.
