This hip-hop / soul band will knock your socks off
Bankrupt Billionaires are a local hip-hop soul band who've been moving and shaking this year. Supporting Clairy Brown and the Banging Rackettes in May (read more here), they headlined at alloneword in August and will be supporting NZ's Fat Freddy's Drop at the Arena in November.
The two front women, Kel on Earth and Hannah Macklin bring solid soul vocals, supported by four gents on drums, keys and sampling sounds from laptops, rounding out with a full hip-hop soul sound to their performances.
