THE HEMPOLICS are out to put those organic rootsy vibes back into music; with their fat radio-friendly hooks, bumping soundsystem bass and a wanderlusty, ineffably real sound all of their own...


Led by the enigmatic Grippa Laybourne, THE HEMPOLICS caused an instant stir with their single Serious, and since then, Boss Clock Me Style, Black Flower and Me Love To Sing have all been playlisted by BBC6 Music with support from Steve Lamacq, Lauren Laverne, Rodigan & Don Letts to name a few. Combined with live performances honed at their own underground club night in London, they are becoming the worst kept secret on the UK circuit today.

Their eclectic forthcoming album 'Kiss, Cuddle & Torture Vol. 1' has been recorded in back to basics fashion throughout the bedrooms and home studios of the band, producing an infectious mash-up of Reggae, Electro, Hip-Hop, Dancehall, Rock and Pop. The weather might be dull, but it's strictly sunshine vibes, resplendent with huge hooks and festival friendly choruses.
 
THE HEMPOLICS have a storm brewing that promises to tear up the UK music scene. Take your eye off them at your peril.
