So, what’s up, guys? What’s on your mind?

We are currently writing new material to stay creative and positive.

The relaunch happened as it is a people’s favourite and didn’t receive the right level exposure first time around. Not to mention a favourite of NIKE’S, as it appeared on their London Stores playlist.

Why did you pick your band name?

We want to turn peoples Tears into Happiness.

When did you form the project and start writing music?

Well it’s more of a project to help people through mental illnesses. And we started in 2017 after singer-songwriter needed a positive outlet for his depression and anxiety.

Could you briefly describe the music-making process for your tracks?

Singer-songwriter Bally will come up with a concept for a song lyrically and melodically. Producer LCamz will start developing the beat to support and elevate the melodic concept.

Really liked the video. Share with us the concept behind it.

WOW!!! Are you ready for this?? Bally is trying to reach a loved one who has gone to heaven and become an angel. He cannot reach and nor can she reach him. Although she can see him as she is an angel but the two worlds are apart and a connection is -impossible. LCamz is also furious as he can see what is going on but feels for both of them and cries out in frustration.

Which animal would best suit your personality?
