“Everyone was writing songs about popping champagne, we were most used to not getting into clubs at all,” Danny Graft says of The Manor’s low-key beginnings. Bred on a diet of grime and garage, a mix of icons like Wiley and local heroes such as Roadside G’s, The Manor put humour and heart into infectious tunes and quotable bars.
Live is where The Manor truly reach their peak. The group started throwing house parties which then became pub gigs until their local in Beckenham became too small and the venues of the capital came knocking. They even kicked off 2019 with a hardcore U.K. jaunt supporting The Streets and go on to perform their headline show at O2 Academy Brixton.
