a bold, inspiring, outward-looking record of insatiable energy from the Malian blues-punk outfit - their second album is even richer, more eclectic & musically adventurous.

With more time & a wider armoury of equipment at their disposal, the album is the sound of Songhoy Blues stretching themselves, with hints of R&B, soul & hip-hop all fusing seamlessly with the band’s trademark exuberant sound. In keeping with their spirit of collaboration 'Resistance' features additional synths by Lxury & vocal contributions from the likes of Iggy Pop, Elf Kid & Stealing Sheep. Beyond this, the album features beautiful string parts ('Hometown') & in one particularly surprising, moving instance ('One Colour'), a children’s choir.
