Well worth looking out for

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. In the clutch of tracks produced so far, there are moments of rock, hip hop, RnB, reggae, jazz, dub and indie fused 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.

The band are well known in London after gigging extensively around the capital and come to Hackney with a live show that more than matches the spontaneity of their records.
