Their aim in creating music is to be a place of comfort and escape, with tracks that pull people away from the chaos of the world and inspire them to sing along and dance. To say that it's working would be an understatement. Their single "101" has almost 30 million plays on Spotify and the band has been featured on Billboard, MTV Buzzworthy, Nylon, and Snapchat. Not to mention climbing to the #1 spot on Hypem, one of the leading independent music discovery sites on the internet. This past June they released their EP "Body Language" a collection of tracks that encompasses the cultural backgrounds and influences the band makes up with their own diverse backgrounds, from the Caribbean to Italy to Indonesia, and of course, Los Angeles.
Into The Gray" was inspired by the instinctive need we all have for human connection, and how despite all of our differences and backgrounds, coming together to connect and engage can save us from the loneliness of the digital age. Jean Marc's soulful vocals are at their best on this track, capturing the emotional magnitude of the message with his deep rasp and introspective demeanor. With a chorus built on layers of harmonies, promising to save each and every one of us from the hurt inside ourselves, it's a beautiful musical moment you won't soon forget.
The coinciding video keeps their message front and center. For a track that was created to inspire and uplift the masses, the live performance video captures the emotional arch behind each story and the plea within the music remind us all that we're not alone, this video is the perfect representation of the clear message and overall feeling of togetherness.
