Formed by brothers Will and Matt Ritson, FORMATION’s life-affirming blend of disco grooves, punk attitude and vehement social insight builds towards its ultimate statement as the new single ‘Powerful People’ (impacting December 16th) previews the release of their eagerly anticipated debut album ‘Look At The Powerful People’ on March 3rd.
The news comes shortly after FORMATION completed a UK tour as guests to Jagwar Ma. ‘Powerful People’ burns with a foreboding atmosphere as hypnotic loops, swooping synths and boisterous percussion all build towards a climactic finale.
Produced by Leon Vynehall and Ben Baptie, ‘Look At The Powerful People’ demonstrates that FORMATION’s forward-thinking sonics have evolved to reach their full potential. Inspired by artists as diverse as Sly and the Family Stone, John Maus, Fugazi, David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Herbie Hancock, Theo Parrish, Beastie Boys, Pantera and Ornette Coleman, FORMATION have built a cult following as well as exponential critical acclaim including a nomination for Best Newcomer at the NME Awards.
