"If you haven’t seen this band live yet you need to. The groove and energy they omit is impossible to ignore. Reggae, rock & punk are effortlessly merged to create a massive wholesome sound. This band have catchy lyrics and great arrangements but it’s the depth of the sound that catches you. The bass is relentless, the drums are authentic and the guitar and vocals play off against each other beautifully. Think Marley, think Sublime and then add even more energy and layers."
