Heard of the Hics before? In this live clip the British sextett seriously FUNKs shit up: 6/4 time, eclectic saxophone, nicely backed vocals, snappy clapsnare.. I’ totally sold.
They have an EP out (called Tangle) – although I like it, they convince me more as a live band. Nevertheless, here’s one of the tracks off it. And the bloke does sound a little like James Blake.
