Their second album, Impersonator, was released May 21, 2013 on Matador Records, and was a longlisted nominee for the 2013 Polaris Music Prize. Their live performance has been critically acclaimed as one of the project's most enigmatic elements, with the band touring extensively throughout North America and Europe to support the album, including performances at Toronto's NXNE festival and New York City's Northside Festival. Pitchfork Media ranked "Impersonator" as the number 8 best album of 2013.

Welsh collaborated with Grimes and the band toured with Lorde on her fall 2014 North American tour.
