Without a doubt one of the best live bands we’ve witnessed this year, in anticipation of their headline show at London’s Electrowerkz on October 30th and in celebration of their debut album ‘Fires In The Park’ released to rave reviews in July, the band have hit us with this exclusive mix for All.We.Create. in order to continue the tomfoolery. Front man Joshua Idehen gave us some insight into the inspiration behind it.
“Benin City is really all about good words, good riffs with the odd batshit crazy leftfield jewel tossed in to shake things up (which would be Colin Stetson). Arctic Monkeys, The Shoes, Late of the Pier, Field Music; just the type of music headphones and afternoon rides on double decker buses were made for, really.”
