When it comes to genre-bending music and the all-round experience of a musical rollercoaster, no album is truer to sticking to this notion than Fires In The Park by Benin City. Having talked about Benin City's previous single Accelerate, vibrancy, energy and eclectism are part and parcel of what this group brings to every song they do.

When it comes to promising new bands, eclectic musical vibes, and well-thought out lyrics - it seems that the unbelievably creative mind of Joshua Idehen knows no end.

This vibrant raucous second single from the 4-piece band Benin City does just that with a massive cherry on top! Named after the Nigerian state capital, this London-based band consists of the members: Theo Buckingham (drums), Faye Treacy (Trombone/BVs), Tom Leaper (Tenor Saxophone/Samples/Synths) and Joshua Idehen (Vocals). Although they have only been going since 2009, the tight musical chemistry as demonstrated in their material since then, and this current single, is second to none and really inspiring to hear from such a "young" band.
