#Pound are an exciting upcoming trio based in Spitalfields, London, consisting of SMXK£, Darkoi and SupaWave. After dropping their last single “Eyes Closed” earlier in the year #Pound are back with their latest track “Saw Her”.
“Saw Her” blends Afrobeat and Dancehall elements alongside Wavy Electro to flawlessly outline SMXK£ soothing vocal melody and Darkoi’s free-flowing rhymes. SupaWave produces a sound unique to #Pound which is both current and refreshing.
Starting out as rappers in UK Grime collectives like Kidz In The Hood and Mucky Wolf Pack, they started their career collaborating with respected UK MC’s like Crazy Titch and God’s Gift. At 15 years old SMXK£ was even part of “Bow For The Wolves” a massive hit for Mucky Wolf Pack, which saw UK nationwide success in the heydays of Channel U.
“Saw Her” sees #Pound release an energetic video filmed on the streets of Brick Lane featuring female passers-by who ‘look like trouble.’ Echoing elements of Drake, Nipsey Hussle and sometimes T-Pain, #Pound mostly do things their way.
