Spring Break are a three-piece hip hop collective who invite us to join them on their journey of ambitious diversity whilst they explore a broad palette of influences that they've marinaded in a melting pot of multiple genres. The result is one of the best albums I've had on repeat so far this year.
They cleverly fuse those influences into the delicious Tropicaledonia album in a Ralph's Life favourites Stanley Odd stylee who they've previously toured with and it will provide the soundtrack of my summer.

A hectic summer of festival appearances, with national press coverage, radio and tv appearances and an advert for Bowers and Wilkins speakers.
A busy year was jubilantly capped off with a SAMA award for Best Hip Hop act.

Spring Break hope the musical diversity of the record will appeal to a wide range of tastes as it draws from the varied backgrounds of all the band members and collaborators.
Lyrically it's a highland reportage on the human condition; detailing daily stresses, mental health, drinking culture and addiction, small town mentality, lampooning back stabbers and the foibles of the industry and pointing a clown gloved finger at toxic masculinity.
