Benin City talks about album plans, the making of ‘Baby’, and the origins of the band

For those who know and for those who don’t, at the end of 2011 we sat down with 4-piece twenty-trick pony Benin City, whom we signed at the beginning of 2012. Their debut single ‘Baby‘ was released in May and went down a storm, its melancholy blues vibes, experimental arrangements and spoken-word lyricism catching the attention of Gilles Peterson, John Kennedy and other influential tastemakers. We sat down with Joshua, Tom & Theo from Benin City to chat about how the ‘Baby’ single was curated, their album plans for 2013 and the origins of the band that is bound to become a household name by the year’s close.

You can peep the video below, and buy ‘Baby’ on iTunes, Juno and Boomkat. Be sure to preview Benin City’s new single ‘Accelerate‘ below too, forthcoming on the 17th of September.
