The pulsating 'Giants' from Empirical's upcoming EP Like Lambs is streaming marking the first new music from Empirical in some three years. One of the UK's most acclaimed jazz acts in recent years three of the pieces on the EP are by the band's drummer Shaney Forbes who says: '‘In my music, I’m exploring how melodies, rhythms and group interplay play a part in creating a kind of landscape of feelings.
