In 2010 they came 2nd in the UK heat of Global Battle of the Bands. In 2011 they were nominated for ‘Best Act’ and ‘Best Album’ alongside Muse in The South West Music Awards.

So what do they sound like?
They’re hip hop cross reggae, infused with soul and ska with a sprinkling of folk. Think stadium anthem songs, fuelled with countless infectious hooks, beautiful harmonies, fat beats and bass, finished off with conscious raps and an unforgettable live performance...

Amazing ..."
