But one thing is for sure that they deserve a lot more appreciation and fame in the world of music.
POTF band enjoys to be withing the people and this is the reason that they do so many tours of different countries including Finland, England, Ireland, India, Denmark, etc. They have the best vocabulary which they use in their tracks and their collaboration of lyrics and music is so perfect that you can literally call them “Poets” of our generation.
