Benin City are made up of vocalist and poet Joshua Idehen, vocalist Shanaz Dorsett and multi-instrumentalist Tom Leaper. Signed to Moshi Moshi, they will release their new album in spring of next year, and it will be an ode to London’s nightlife. Clubbing is near and dear to their hearts; a source of euphoria and a weekly, often daily escape and respite from the grind of normality.
On new single and visual, 'Take Me There,' Benin City draw on the last decade of their collective experiences as ravers, bar workers and observers and their reflections are primed for the dancefloor. The result is visceral and Idehen's vocals are striking, with his vivid lyrics translated onto subtitles for added intensity.
