Grove: Bristol's radical new voice in queer dancehall - Loud And Quiet

"These tunes are a statement of who I am, not necessarily reflective of everyone who's queer and Black" "It's never been a conscious thing. It's just needing to express whatever anger or resentment I've got piling up inside, and working out in what ways I can do that."
