Formation make a play with new track ‘Powerful People’

Come in 2017, Formation are after your throne.
As 2016 winds down, 2017’s most likely start to push their case for the new year. Formation have it all on the line – there’s a debut album set to drop, after all. Big moves are on the agenda.

That’s why they’re going straight to the top of the pile with their new track ‘Powerful People’. With a name like that, it could hardly get away with anything but a ruddy great electro-funk shove, and that’s exactly what it’s packing. Stalking through to a high hat riding chorus, it’s a glove thrown down in challenge to what the new year brings.

Given a first spin last night (November 2nd) by Annie Mac on her BBC Radio 1 show, you can check out ‘Powerful People’ below, or on our Spotify Brand New Bangers playlist here.
