SAN FRANCISCO – Today Strava solidifies their position as the home for all things sport with the introduction of posts, a new way for athletes to share even more of their athletic lives on the social network.

An electronic heart pumps through their music, yet Rudimental emphasize that they are a band in the traditional sense. All four members play instruments, both on-stage and in the studio. And it’s through jamming together as a band that they find the collective voice that becomes their songs. “We just play around and throw ideas out there, until one sticks,” says Amir. “One or two of us might have the original idea that we build upon.
