Partisan Records announce signing of Ezra Collective

Debut single for label ‘Victory Dance’ unveiled

London, 7th June 2022 Partisan Records, the Brooklyn-headquartered independent music group with offices in London and home to Fela Kuti, IDLES, Fontaines D.C., Laura Marling and others, has announced the signing of Ezra Collective and details of their debut single for the label.

A de facto supergroup, the various members of London based Ezra Collective have been keeping busy with drummer Femi Koleoso now an integral part of the Gorillaz line up, bassist TJ Koleoso playing alongside Yazmin Lacey, keyboardist Joe Armon-Jones contributing to Mick Jenkin’s latest album, touring with Nubya Garcia and releasing a collaborative EP with Fatima, saxophonist James Mollison performing in Nala Sinephro’s band, and trumpeter Ife Ogunjobi playing sold out stadiums with Burna Boy.

Victory Dance, the band’s new single is released today; a summer-ready, salsa-infused track, which comes with   an accompanying video directed by Femi Ladi (Ghetts, Pa Salieu, BackRoad Gee).

Victory Dance embodies that feeling when something brings joy and the expression is beyond words.  Not everyday talk.  Sometimes you just have to dance instead,” explains bandleader and drummer, Femi Koleoso.

Ezra Collective recently played two warm-up shows in Paris and London ahead of an acclaimed performance at the BBC 6 Music festival and are currently back in the studio recording new music.

Zena White, Managing Director of Partisan Records said, “”We are so proud and excited to welcome Ezra Collective to our roster.  Having been fans of their world class musicianship for years, we are so happy to bring their music and message to our daily work and can’t wait to support them in the next years of their flourishing career.”
