The group promoted a strong environmental & feminist message through their lyrics, liner notes and photo & video imagery.
The group was formed in 1991 when Kirsty was noticed by Ian, Kevin and Nigel during a rave event who were known at the time as A.S.K. (which was an offshoot of the Spiral Tribe).
The song was originally recorded in 1983 by Jane, but Opus III's version used only of the first verse & chorus of the song.
The song is considered a housem music classic and is the basis for electronic/dance music band Orbital's 1992 song "Halycon."
After the release of their follow-up album, Opus III disbanded. One of the reasons was because Kirsty was worried about the project becoming too commercial.
Kirsty went on to pursue a solo career and today, she is still considered a major presence in dance music.
She has lent her vocals to various electronic & dance music tracks & artists such as Delerium, Silent Poets, DJ Tiesto and with Orbital.
