It continued: “Leaning on the Massive Attack trip-hop noir vibes first hinted at on [2022 album] ‘Skinty Fia’’s title track, ‘Starburster’ is a pensive art-rock beast that fuses elements of electronica and hip-hop more akin to their fellow striking countrymen (and recent collaboratorsKNEECAP.”

In other news, the band are also scheduled to make appearances at GlastonburyReading & Leeds, Pukkelpop and Sziget among other festivals across the season.
