Not sure why they aren‘t massive. Ok, no art rock with a whiny singer. That might explain the position on this site. Instead you get highly energized indie soul (?), very catchy, adictive with some sort of a dirty street vibe. Very enjoyable album.

This has to be the most replay-able album I've heard all year.

It's remarkable to me that they are so unheard of (at the time of writing at least), but the mystery around them and the purity of expectations that creates upon the first listen really goes a long way.

A lot of it sounds like if Portishead took a radical left turn and went really discoey, maybe did a bunch of Liquid Liquid covers and threw on some really soulful R&B vocals with an endless stream of great hooks. The production is so cold and murky, the album art a is perfect accompaniment to that feeling.

I'm really excited to listen to 7 a tonne if I ever get tired of this (maybe 1, 2, 3, 4 & 6 eventually too??? Lol I have no idea what the hell the deal is with these guys!).
