Last year young rock/hiphop duo STIKS from Chelmsford, UK, debuted with their now deleted and hard-to-find “MASSIVE” mixtape. Their combination of grime, punkrock and hip hop created a buzz and the duo have been home recording more songs since.
“Put Us Down” is the new single and continues the party vibe, reminiscent of Fatboy Slim, but the fierce raps have a serious message. Still being in their teens, Sam and Curtis are becoming aware of the struggles of getting their music out there. Fortunately without sounding cynical. Instead they stay true to their raw sound and DIY attitude, and that shines through: “Put Us Down” celebrates youthful confidence and perseverance.
