INTRODUCING : BROCKHAMPTON
When a band recruited through the Kanye West fan forum is made, you know it’s going to be something special. Brockhampton were formed through KanyeToThe in 2011, after putting out a post advertising to see; “anyone wanna make a band?”. Making up the 14 strong hip-hop group are vocalists, producers, web designer, photographer and manager. Living and recording together in the same space was much more than a collaborative experience as much as it was an art form. They have 3 studio albums, a documentary and have just become even more widespread in the UK, with their headlining set at Reading festival. Their fresh approach and honest lyrics make them a stand out on the hip-hop scene.
Their new album Iridescence seems to smash the success of their last, being recorded in 10 days at the legendary Abby Road studios. Dedicating their album to London, Brockhampton have used samples from Beyonce and feature their close pal Jaden Smith on one of the tracks.
If you’ve not said hi to them in your Spotify or iTunes yet, I suggest you get on it…
