Today, our new music spotlight is on Banumathi.

Location: Brighton

Line-up: Malique Greaves (vocals/guitar) Hannah Thompson (Vocals) Hannah Websdale (Drums) George Crump (Bass) 

Banumathi are a contemporary Brighton R&B Fusion Band. Fronted by rapper, singer and guitarist Malique Greaves, the band pair the vibe and buttery smooth vocals of Lauryn Hill with the lyrical intensity of Tyler the Creator.

What Hidden Herd say: It’s not very often that something original comes along in today’s scene, especially a sound so accessible and poignant. Pointing (albeit lightly) towards some of the biggest names in the industry at the moment, Banumathi have created a sound that’ll carve them out an immediate, dutiful following.

For fans of: Tyler the Creator, Daniel Caesar
