Following their critically acclaimed recent releases, Luke Royalty’s ‘Stay Gold’ and ‘I Do’ and Sweets’ ‘I’m Not Coming Home’ and ‘Yellow’, the Unlikely Lads release their first collaboration since the classic ‘I Could Get Used To This’, a surprise drop on Soul Kitchen Recordings.
Born in Newcastle, now living in Manchester, Sweets is part of a new generation of artists working outside of London, bringing unique, razor-sharp observations to the UK scene. Grime, drill, and hip-hop combine as Sweets documents his days and nights with dark humour, honesty, and real intensity, painting vivid pictures of life in the city.
Already Sweets has been tipped by Clash, The Line of Best Fit, Notion, Earmilk and more. He has gained support from Amazing Radio: Yellow currently on the A list, and BBC Radio1: Jack Saunders Future Artists. He will be taking his incredible live show back out this autumn, playing Dot to Dot, Liverpool Sound City and Live at Leeds. He is currently finishing his debut EP, set for release later this year.
Hailing from Darlington in the Northeast of England, Luke Royalty came from a creative family of artists and musicians. He, however, avoided dabbling in music until his late teens, preferring to spend his time playing Sunday League football and following his beloved Darlington FC. Upon finding influence in the likes of Mac Miller and Amy Winehouse, Luke got drawn into the culture of turning his words to music and the rest is history in the making.
Having already garnered support from key players including BBC Radio 1 (“I Do” was Radio 1’s Introducing Track Of The Week and “Stay Gold” Jack Saunders Next Wave track), BBC 6Music, BBC Introducing, Clash Magazine, The Independent and Amazing Radio. Luke looks set to be one of the breakout acts of 2021.
Also playing Dot to Dot, Liverpool Sound City and Live At Leeds. He is also currently finishing his debut EP, set for release later this year.
