Their first R&B Grammy nomination, for their song “Nakamarra,” was followed by a second for “Breathing Underwater,” from their sophomore album, 2015’s Choose Your Weapon

From July onwards, audiences across the country will be amongst the first to experience Mood Valiant live. Playing at some of the most beloved venues in Melbourne, including The Forum on 9 & 10 September.
