THE WISE BLOODS - The UK's SOUL ROCK REBELS
London's modern roots Reggae 6-piece The Wise Bloods, draw on contemporary influences to bring you their unique reggae sound. Self- described as Soul Rock Reggae, The Wise Bloods take inspirations from Soul while they also bring an unruly Hip Hop and Rock delivery into the mix, placing their music firmly into the modern roots era. Sitting well internationally alongside progressive roots such as 'Tribal Seeds', as well as the work of those from the roots revival movement such as 'Protoje' and 'Lila Ike', The Wise Bloods pride themselves as London's 'baddest' sound with an unapologetic British edge that makes them stand out from their reggae contemporaries. Their originality stems from the bands driving passion, street attitude and deep lyrics that prove relevant to current day contexts and experience.
Following the release of debut singles ‘Turn The Tide’ and ‘New Blood’, The Wise Bloods began to receive radio play (Rodigan/ BBC 1xtra, Sarah C Vibes Fm, Was Kwame/ Capital xtra etc) and international recognition across the reggae community. The Wise Bloods continue to grow followings internationally and have seen growing successes since the release of their latest EP ‘Let Me Love’, described by David Rodigan (BBC 1Xtra) as ‘Very impressive’. This talented Reggae collective guarantee a live show of upful energy, deep grooves and a healthy dose of London realness.
