This is social observation par excellence. If Chaucer had lived today these are the stories he would have told. Solareye’s verse speaks with the sort of international message found in Burns, of time and place but having universal relevance. The people and places may differ but the message will resonate with everyone, everywhere.
Band members are:
Solareye – rap vocals
Veronika Electronika – singing, shaking what her momma gave her
Samson – drums, electronics, other stuff you can hit
AdMac – bass and beard
Kamarata Kamerun – guitars, Norweggie rage
T Lo – keys, questions and answers
a six-piece Edinburgh outfit that combines the observational wit and savvy of The Streets with the full-band musicality of classic Scottish pop .. At last, someone has put the Mc in MCâ€.Â The Word
Solareye, The word-smith of the group, has some fantastic lyrics and at times an awesome and relentless flow and they are complimented with the exquisite soulful vocals of Veronica Electronica. music-news.com
These Scottish hip-hop standard bearers sound much more relevant than the mighty Eminem, rapping stories that are social realism with a sense of humour and dance shoes. Veronika Electronika has a Nu Yorican style that gives The Numbness or Get Out Of Bed a smooth edge, while reinforcing the humour. The star of the show is Solareye. Delivery deadly, rhymes sublime.
