They’ve opened for Kojo Funds on his tour in Sweden, and now their latest single is ‘Hold On’. We caught up with Rolldens to find out more about their music career so far.

Melodic catchy and blends in many sounds, so that’s why we call it afro wave.

Why the name ‘Rolldens’?
Literally was given from our first manager as Dee and Robbie and he just added it to put Rolldens and we just ran with it since.

How would you describe your musical style?

Amazing experience and a real eye opener to how your music can spread and really shows you people react to your music.

You’ve received support from Link Up TV and GRM Daily… what does that mean to you?
Great, the UK right now creatively it’s great place too really express and put stuff out there and it’s really giving us confidence. To put our music on those platforms knowing it’s getting pushed properly.

Your breakthrough hit was ‘Sunting’. What was so significant about that track?

It got a great response locally and it helped us further solidify our growing afro wave style.

Tell us about your latest single ‘Hold On’? When did you write it and where did you record it?
