The Bots are two brothers, Mikaiah Lei, 16, and Anaiah Lei, 12, sons of a Chinese father and an Afro-Caribbean mother.
Shout out to '68's Brian Tate, who sent me the link to this video. It was forwarded to him by his guitarist, Eddie Alsina, who said in a note, ". . .they rock tha fuck out." Actually, The Bots performance is quite impressive, given their ages.
Their site says their sound is a combination of Punk, Ska, Rock and Reggae, and that they cite The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Rancid, Bad Brains, Led Zeppelin, The Artic Monkeys and Vampire Weekend (to name a few) as their influences.
The Bots are ones to watch. I'm looking forward to hearing their full album.
Here's a background video on the band:
