Music video: West Yorkshire band The Brigantes

Have your say

Hailing from Halifax, West Yorkshire, The Brigantes are making waves with a rare groove that has come from a mixture of reggae and ska which developed following an upbringing influenced by the various members’ parents love for those catchy genres.

Add in a bit of hip-hop along with a punk attitude, and it all makes for a heady brew that makes The Brigantes stand out from the usual indie sound.

Ebonnie, 20 (vocals, guitar), Harrison, 19 (vocals), Jordan, 18 (bass) and Drew, 18 (percussion) make a sound that makes you want to move your feet. Some locals have christened it ‘Halifax dancehall’.

Following a series of successful shows, including support slots for Dirty Revolution and The Booze and Blues Festival, The Brigantes have teamed up with the Arch-Way Project to record a performance video for the infectious track Racket.

The Arch-Way Project (Halifax) provide a space, time and facilities to those in the community that could do with their help. Racket is available for free download from the band’s Soundcloud page.
