In their near decade and a half as a band, Deaf Havana have had quite the journey. Countless tours, festivals and shows. Changes in sound. Love from critics – less love from critics. But one thing that is undeniable, they’ve put the bloody work in.
The 7 December 2018 shows that – as they play to a near-full 5k cap Brixton Academy.
Having just launched album Rituals earlier this year, this show was almost a belated, yet still celebratory, launch party – beautiful, inspiring, and at times, heartwarming. Beginning with tracks from the aforementioned record, the dark, brooding ‘Epiphany’, before slamming into ‘Hell’ with a, “FUCKING BRIXTON”. Here we go.
