I really like what I saw & heard in the videos. San E and Mad Clown have a synergistic approach when working together and yet their music is soooooooo good when heard as solo works. I love their sounds.. and their videos are interesting presentations of their stage personalities.
NB: Wonder how long before they hit the Coachella Circuit? That would be amazing
