Society of Sound: Mammal Hands

The November release on Bowers & Wilkins Society of Sound comes from Mammal Hands. Their captivating, ethereal and majestic album 'Shadow Work' incorporates a disparate array of influences: drawing on spiritual jazz, north Indian, folk and classical music to create something inimitably their own.

The band (saxophonist Jordan Smart, pianist Nick Smart and drummer and percussionist Jesse Barrett) hail from Norwich, one of Britain’s most isolated and most easterly cities, and that’s perhaps why they have forged their own path away from the musical mainstream to develop a unique sound collaboratively constructed by their powerful group dynamic.
