Creators of one of 2017s most acclaimed albums The Navigator, NYC outfit Hurray For the Riff Raff bring their genre blending Americana to the U.K in October.  
Led by NYC born Puerto Rican songwriter Alynda Segarra, a move from New Orleans back to her hometown provided the inspiration for the LP. 
Recipient of exceptional praise with a full five stars from The Observer, critics were united in praise with plaudits including 9/10 from Uncut, 8.1 from Pitchfork and four star write ups from Q, Mojo and The Skinny. 
Beautifully arranged by Michael Kiwanuka producer Paul Butler, “The Navigator” defies categorisation, drawing from cult favourite Rodriguez, Lou Reed, doo-wop, Motown and traditional Afro-Caribbean and Puerto Rican music. An inspired modern take on Americana, don’t miss the chance to see one of this year’s finest albums live at close quarters.
