Released: 25th Sep 2015


out of stock

eloquent, fierce, explosively funky & thrillingly out-there, the energetic jazz-rock outfit have surpassed themselves, delivering a sophomore stuffed to the rafters with the euphoric, danceable grooves & riffs that made their 2013 debut 'Burn' such a success.

boasting a line-up that comprises some of the most progressive 21st-century talents in British jazz & beyond, Band-leader, composer & sax & clarinet player Shabaka Hutchings continues his fiery vision alongside London-based band mates Tom Skinner & Seb Rochford (a dynamo duo on drums) & latest addition, Theon Cross (taking over from Oren Marshall) on tuba. blazing with unpredictable atmospheres & effects, they continue to reach out, drawing in influences from literature, politics, Caribbean roots, New Orleans, West African roots & Western military band music. The album's restless & trancey energy is a collective achievement for fans of melt yourself down or polar bear.
