They're pretty great.

Sure, I downloaded their most recent album because of "Come with Me Now". I love that track, and it fit so perfectly in The Expendables 3's marketing and final cut.

Lunatic is cool. "I'm Only Joking", "I Want to Know" and "As We Are" are great tracks. Not got any further yet.

"Hey I Don't Know" is probably my second favourite track behind "Come with Me Now". Great stuff.

Ten years on and I'm still loving KONGOS. Their 2016 follow-up album, Egomaniac is pretty good, too. But I think their first album, Lunatic, is sensational. Can't believe it was a decade ago though.

Their sound is just so unique. I suppose they could be identified as a Mumford & Sons-type act where a lot of their material sounds similar - but it just works. They're also upbeat and have great foot-tapping rhythym.
