Their song ‘Night Time’ from their first album ‘Local Anaesthetic’ appeared on the Brit comedy film ‘Three and Out’. In 2009 they were finalists in the 02 Wireless Unsigned competition. In 2010 they came 2nd in the UK heat of Global Battle of the Bands. In 2011 they were nominated for ‘Best Act’ and ‘Best Album’ alongside Muse in The South West Music Awards.

So what do they sound like? With a catalogue of undiscovered hits, they’re Hip Hop cross Reggae, infused with Soul and Ska with a sprinkling of Folk.

Think stadium anthem songs, fuelled with countless infectious hooks, beautiful harmonies, fat beats and bass, finished off with conscious raps and an unforgettable live performance… The name says it all – Never Underestimate Musical Belief.
