Folly Group ‘Human and Kind’ 12"
Pre-order. Due 8th April
Folly Group become the first band on Ninja Tune imprint Technicolour (Elkka, Sofia
Kourtesis, VTSS) with their new EP ‘Human and Kind’. The four-piece of Sean Harper, Louis Milburn, Kai Akinde-Hummel and Tom Doherty formed in the tumultuous melting-pot of the London musical circuit. They released their debut EP ‘Awake and Hungry’ last year, receiving wide acclaim for their electronic infused post-punk sound and furiously brilliant live shows, landing coveted slots at Pitchfork Music Festival, in NME’s 100 Artists On The Rise and a co-sign from IDLES’ singer Joe Talbot.
Speaking about the EP, Folly Group said: “Where ‘Awake and Hungry’ doubled as a diary of the band’s formative months and encapsulation of our live show, ‘Human and Kind’ is a projection of our ambition, and our desire to push ourselves through what we might previously have perceived as the ceiling of possibility for four players.”
For fans of Black Country, New Road, Squid, Yard Act, Black Midi, Dry Cleaning, Shame, Do Nothing.
