sextrafika first got together in November 2004 when Danny, Tim and Phil began writing and practicing above a bar in Leeds City Centre. Taking influence from bands like Gomez, early-Verve, Pink Floyd and David Bowie, they honed their skills playing mainly at open mic events in Leeds between February and May 2005 at Doctor Wu's, The Primrose, Carpe Diem and Mook's 'Live Lounge' event which became a regular fortnightly gig. Dave completed the line-up on drums in July after originally guesting on percussion at a Doctor Wu's gig and sextrafika played their first gig as a full band at The Primrose on 21st July 2005. They have since played 'Lyrically Justified' at The Conservatory on 28th July..
