West African funky seventies grooves, highlife guitar licks, deep electronica synth beats clash and meld for this supercharged 8-piece band, setting dancefloors alight wherever they play. Fronted by Nigerian singer Eno Williams, the band harness “all the ebullient joy of their West African heritage…and all the subversion of the London underground” (Drowned In Sound). Best experienced live and raw, get ready for a high-octane “slice of futuristic, post-punk spotted, afro-funk” (Clash).
