Pangolin is a 7-strong band based in Oxford, UK. Formed in early 2016, it aims to explore and exploit the natural overlaps between funk, jazz, soul and hiphop, developing original works that juxtapose virtuosic vocal lines and florid instrumental solos with searing spoken word and finger-tight grooves. The group draws its influences from a wide range of artists, such as J Dilla, Robert Glasper, Hiatus Kaiyote, Snarky Puppy, GoGo Penguin, Vulfpeck, and Radiohead, backed up with the rich tradition of centuries of classical music in which many of the band members first sharpened their creative teeth. Pangolin is: Jemimah Taylor - vocals Femi Nylander - rap/vocals Jacob Rainbow - keys Rob Dimbleby - keys Ben Clapin - sax/synth/vocoder Harry Brokensha - bass/synth Dan Mort - drums/drumpad/loops

The music that they make is indeed full of special effects; this group are masters of stimulus. The vibe is always intense but they steer the audience from empathy to elation, from poignancy to passion. The overall sense is like a balloon full of golden syrup – there's this craft-fully contained fullness to their sound, and every time they reach a peak, there's no bang, and instead the sweet viscosity seeps out.
