As one of the very first of the new wave of brass bands to appear, Hackney Colliery Band have consistently pushed the boundaries of what we think of as a ‘brass band’. Best known in their early days for their unlikely covers, including Toto’s Africa and Blackstreet’s No Diggity, HCB have nevertheless always had original music at their very core, producing four albums of almost entirely newly-penned music since 2011.
With their latest single, FLOOD, the first single from forthcoming Collaborations: Volume Two album, HCB continue to surprise, producing a fiery vocal-led diatribe on the state of the world in 2022.
