This band has been making waves in and outside of their local scene with exciting/introspective jams that leave concert goers physically drained and mentally well-fed. This band has been compared to a unique blend of rapper Kid Cudi and band Rage Against the Machine for their witty/catchy conscious lyrics and unique blend of psy-punk beats that flow seamlessly even in their genre stretching style.

"Unlikely Heroes, “Tazzy”
The debut EP by these newcomers was one of the best surprises of 2018. With songs that flip between spaced-out jams, hip-hop, and raw punk rock. “Set the city ablaze and watch the ashes fall down right now” is for sure the mantra of the year."
"If you’re looking for new music over the weekend, look no further than Unlikely Heroes EP self-titled debut EP. A marvelous collection of conscious hip-hop with a psychedelic bend, the six-track album draws inspiration from everyone including artists like Kid Cudi to Rage Against the Machine. With witty lyricism and an unpredictable blend of psychedelia and punk-rock, the EP brings to life a multi-dimensional soundscape of pure awesomeness.
Stream the undeniable EP and watch the mesmerizing visual for their lead single, “Sun”, down below."
"Packaged with their upcoming debut EP, Unlikely Heroes created stunning visuals for their lead track “Sun” in which they recruited ballerina Leilani Neal-Ramos and music video director Josh Fields (Hatch 86 Films) for a wild black light rager!
“Sun” sounds quite contradictory to the title but is actually very relevant. Just as the sun rises, the sun sets. This track sets the tone for the EP taking the listens down to a darker place with just a glimmer of hope. Unlikely Heroes continues to push the limits adding ballet to their psy-punk vibes to challenge their musical style, not only in song but in dance."
“Sun” takes me back to my days where I went to check out the oddest, most ‘Alternative’ artists ever. It didn’t matter if it were in New York City, Michigan, Colorado, Los Angeles or Europe, I made it a point to be there. The Unlikely Heroes remind of that time in my life. The more creative freedom you have, the more you tend to express yourself. I see it is the case with the video for “Sun”. The group enlists a ballerina (Leilani Neal-Ramos) for a night of fun. “Sun” is from their upcoming EP."
