Benin City is the London-based three-piece comprised of vocalists Joshua Idehen and Shanaz Dorsett with multi-instrumentalist Tom Leaper. “Take Me There” is the first track since the band’s critically acclaimed debut project, Fires in the Park, and is taken from their upcoming first record for Moshi Moshi which will be an ode to London’s nightlife, released in spring of next year. Full details are to be announced soon.
“We always felt the album should start with something about that giddy anticipation when walking into a club for the first time - that feeling as you walk through the double door and bass fills your knees and everything is potential and everyone is interesting and dry ice and strobes are in the air. We had been working on this beat with our producer Marc Pell (Micachu and the Shapes) for a few weeks and still tinkering with the chorus section when I wrote a poem about my own experiences - most of my lyrics first come as either whole poems, couplets or as a chorus. We placed it on the beat and it was a perfect fit.”
