After a self-produced EP, in 2012 the New Candys released the album 'Stars Reach The Abyss' on Foolica, a UK tour followed. In 2015 they took part in "The Reverb Conspiracy", a compilation curated by Fuzz Club/The Reverberation Appreciation Society (Levitation Austin). Later that year 'New Candys As Medicine', an album mixed by John Wills (producer and drummer of Loop), was released on both Picture In My Ear/Fuzz Club and added to The Committee To Keep Music Evil catalogue. It received praises from Simone Marie Butler of Primal Scream and Stephen Lawrie of The Telescopes. Two EU/UK tours followed, including festivals like The Secret Garden Party 2015 and Liverpoool Psych Fest 2016.
