With the ever-charismatic Stuart A. Staples as its frontman, this group has had an exemplary career since the early 1990’s.

Whether it is through their appropriation of soul, new-wave or folk, this English band has created a musical world both personal and universal, and the flood of emotions triggered by their songs will satisfy any music-lover hungry for intense experiences.
