Where to even start when describing The Laurel Collective…? Collective by name and by composition also, the six piece (whittled down from nineteen a year ago) comprise members hailing from Wales, England, Nigeria and Italy.
The Laurels are a genre trashing six piece led by the twin attack and contrasting vocals of front men Martin Sakutu and Bob Tollast. Imagine the motley crew spirit of such misfit gangs as The Specials and Dexys mixed with the rhythmical assault and groove of Sly Family Stone, and blended with the psychedelic pop sensibilities of Super Furry Animals and you’d be half way there.
The Laurel Collective are most definitely not your straight forward, ready-for-pigeonholing indie band.Domino Recording Company is an independent record label founded in 1993. Subscribe to Domino: goo.gl/kdcyu
