Following up from the highly regarded single “The Breach” which hit over 150k views on youtube, Left 2 (Ruins) pushes more boundaries musically and visually which requires vocalist MC Lazy to bring his A game. The slick rhythms infused with the infectious hooks above the catchy brass,epitomises what the band are about and how far they have come since their debut album.
