ARTIST 2:
Mixing punk anger with the flow of hip-hop, Sweets is building a musical world of his own. Sensitive, thoughtful, searingly honest, he paints raw and unflinching portrayals of youth culture and society in modern Britain 🎧

He's been tipped by NME, Clash, The Line Of Best Fit, Notion and Equate. Jack Saunders has been an early fan at BBC Radio 1, whilst Sweets has also picked up support on BBC 1Xtra and 6Music 🚨
