51/50s

51/50s (pronounced “fifty-one-fifties”) is a British rock band formed in London, UK in 2007. The story of 51/50s has a somewhat bittersweet beginning, when the band’s founder and lead singer Rikki Lee started writing songs about his life experiences while being homeless and living on the streets. Rikki composed many of the band’s first songs during those times and most notably the songs “Lies” and “Hypnotised”, which reflect his experiences rather vividly.
