Named Band on the Wall’s ‘one to watch’ in 2019, Agbeko has launched into the post-lockdown world armed with a new album There Must Be Another Way. This builds on the DIY-ethos demonstrated across three releases since 2017, including the independently released debut album D.O.D (2020) featured on Bandcamp Daily.
Agbeko are stalwarts of the UK’s much-lauded festival scene, including performances at Green Man, Wilderness, Secret Garden Party, Blue Dot, The Great Escape, Boomtown, Kelburn Garden Party, Timber Festival, Oxford Festival of the Arts and Manchester Jazz Festival.
Agbeko continues to receive outstanding reviews and coverage in UK press: from Jazzwise Magazine (live review: March 2020) to Songlines Magazine (introduction feature: February 2019) and the Guide to World of Music (‘Ones To Watch’ in 2019, alongside Nubiyan Twist and Steam Down). International press includes an exclusive feature in Vice, Italy; a ‘New and Notable’ listing on the Bandcamp Homepage for debut album D.O.D; and on British Airways’ ‘Next Big Thing’ in-flight radio programme.
