“The suburbs may have raised us but the city keeps us alive!” - Jessica Komyati
“ These newcomers who have been jamming quietly are poised to make a splash in the pool of contemporary musical confusion. It seems to me a few bands are stuck in a trendy Americana mode. While some hardcore music lovers are taking to YouTube to find post punkiness, young bands bringing and the grunginess of 90’s Nirvana complete with laid back guitar work combined with dragging lyrics. Papi fills the void!”
