Banji is a fresh as f*ck Netherlands-based foursome. Listening to their songs, you might envision them as the musical embodiment of dangling necklaces, loose fit dungarees, 8-bit arcade and ironic thrift shop finds. The quartet has created its own hybrid of pop, R&B, wobbly synth-driven electro funk, distorted vocals and in your face licks. Banji’s look and feel in a few keywords? Playful, young at heart, colourful and rebellious. With debut single Listen – a joint production with Jeroen de Pessimier (The Subs, producer for Oscar & The Wolf), mixed by Mucky (Fresku, Sevdaliza) – the band birthed an anthem appealing to anyone with an ear for outspoken, catchy guitar melodies. The result of the above? A band that reaches audiences throughout many different genres. Support slots for DI-RECT, Balthazar and Vampire Weekend are the evidence of this diversity. Banji is ready to kick ass.
