Trouble In The Streets calls their latest EP Rule Breaker, and that's no idle boast. Everything about the group is designed to defy expectation. During a time of conformity, they've dispensed with genre limitations and crafted a style and sound all their own – one that draws from hip-hop, punk, electronic music, dream pop, avant-soul, and wild, wigged-out experimental music. At their explosive concerts, the line between audience and band is blurred by the approachability of the musicians and the enthusiasm of their listeners. Their lyrics are frequently confrontational and uncompromising, but they're hopeful, too; they're invitations to other outsiders to join the rebellion. Putting together novel combinations of sounds, taking left turns, astonishing fans with the intensity of their performances – that's what the sonic agitators in Trouble In The Streets do.
