“A really cool rock band” – Iggy Pop, February 2019

“Playing like a combination of distorted Jimi Hendrix guitars with a husky Otis Redding voice, former busker Ese Okorodudu’s five-piece band has the potential to bring London’s soul scene from its half-empty basement bars into packed venues and festival stages” – The Guardian, December 2018
