Keep an eye out for this mob! Great to hear some home grown music that gets the groove and makes you wanna move! Kinda like funk meets with Ian Dury, Talking Heads, Eric Burdon…….which is then fronted by the glamorous and powerful lead vocals of the one and only Kalo Lowe! Lots of fun!
Just the right amount of edginess and funk for my liking
