The explosive new live band features musical direction from Kwake (Sampha, Kate Tempest), keys and samples from Raffy Bushman (Unit 31), drums from Ben Brown (Alfa Mist) , vocals and vibraphone from Hannah Davis plus Dizraeli – who has a legendary reputation as a live performer – on vocals, dance and multiple percussion instruments. Every show is a journey, from intensely heartfelt to all-out rave.
