Moving into grime, our lyrics became more in-depth.
I remember when I was a kid, if you had your name on a piece of vinyl, man, you were, like, in the halls of Valhalla; all of sudden, you were hanging out with Odin and being at the table of the gods. You were the real deal; you weren’t some guy struggling in a garage somewhere.

Steph McGovern
My dream was to have a garage where I could put some of the coolest cars I’ve ever seen throughout my life.
