‘Something really good is happening in Cornish music at the moment .... there's great stuff rocking out of Kernow. Check out these guys ... take a beautifully crafted hybrid of The Prodigy and Portishead and throw it into the melting pot with heavy metal and you're getting somewhere in the region of what this Launceston outfit are doing right now. I caught them live this weekend at the excellent Little Bridge Stock festival in North Devon. Thoroughly recommended.’
