This “Rock-Noir”-Sound is falling in love with hip hop. Jazzy scintillations kept in check by the Blues.
Glorious melodies and catchy hooks pull you in and won’t let go. And through it all, this marvelous band with their gripping groove manages to present the sophisticated arrangements in an accessible way.
