THE COMET IS COMING
With the apocalypse never seeming closer, the far-out fusion of The Comet Is Coming is now more comforting than ever. Based around the concept of what sounds would remain come a widespread sonic destruction, the group squeeze their audience through wormholes and out of black holes with an entrancing eclecticism which combines Afrobeat with electronica, jazz and funk.
Formed in 2013, the supergroup of sorts is made up of Shabaka Hutchings (Sons of Kemet, Melt Yourself Down), Danalogue and Betamax (Soccer96), releasing ‘Channel The Spirits’ on The Leaf Label in 2016. Together they carry the possessed spirit of Sun Ra kicking and screaming into the 21st Century, throwing in elements of Zappa and Hendrix along the way.
