Smoky Tentacles

Necktr are a 9 piece soul-fusion band based in Leeds, drawing influences from hip-hop, Latin, jazz, Afrobeat and ambient music. Their sound is expansive and pays respect to a broad range of influences, from MF Doom to Portishead, and Fela Kuti to The Cinematic Orchestra and far beyond. Recently they’ve played alongside some pretty heavyweight bands, highlights including a tour shindig with Têtes de Pois, a set at Brainchild Festival and a headline show at Brudenell Social Club in Leeds.
