Formed in 2010 as a 3 piece Rock band, I Set The Sea On Fire have gradually evolved their unique sound, and finally settled on a genre most likely to be described as an offshore oil rig explosion. Combining traditional Indie Rock with elements of Hip Hop, Funk and Grunge, I Set The Sea On Fire have earned their status as THE Alternative band to watch in Sheffield.

Their massive single “Tastes Like Funk” has been critically lauded and used in all manner of multimedia, most notably BT Sport, Sky Sports and British Airways’s on board Radio. It has also seen prime time plays on BBC Radio 1 & 2.
