The 52s

The 52s started life in a grimy student house in south Oxford where Oli and Vex would jam out originals and funky covers in their bedrooms while taking breaks from their degrees. After playing in a number of college bars the duo teamed up with fellow students to record two original songs as part of the vulture sessions series on youtube showcasing new artist in Oxford. The videos drew some attention and the pair became a regular feature at college balls as well as regular slots at Cellar and Frevd alongside the likes of Dots Funk Odyssey and Holly Redford-Jones.
