**** IN SEARCH OF ****
(Rock/Hip Hop/RnB/Jazz/ Dub)
In Search Of are the result of a friendship formed by four boys at secondary school in East London. There they swapped musical styles and influences to create a group with an output which touches so many genre bases. They fuse rock, hip hop, RnB, reggae, jazz, dub and indie together with hidden, echoey and often eerie vocals and harmonies. Mixing tributes to older sounds with innovative new ones, life is certainly never dull with In Search Of around!
