    We've always been a provocative act, not by will, but by nature. We, as musicians feel content in experimenting with an extremely diverse range of styles, and our overall sound is owed to our eclectic tastes in music, formal backgrounds and, appreciation for acts and artists that made a difference and defined what we listen to today. Our sound is a cultivated one, but with an air of hedonism and malintent!
