Benin City 'Faithless'

Stream African electronic music group Benin City's latest single "Faithless."

Benin City is a self-described 'electro brass' London group fronted by UK/Nigerian Josh Idehen, who previously worked with Okayafrica favorites LV on their album Routes and 38 EP. Benin City's latest single "Faithless," off their upcoming Fires In The Park LP, builds on a singular guitar riff and Idehen's sung/spoken vocals, eventually reaching a full-fledged indie-electronic affair. Stream "Faithless" below, as well as Benin City's two previous singles "My Love" and "Baby," to get the full scope of the London trio's sonic stamp.
