Songs about eating people! Dancing on graves! Infidelity! But it’s not all bad news.
Manchester’s finest ethio-trad, folk-hop & barrelhouse-pop exponents have the skill, charm and (frankly) tunes to pull it all together into a joyful, foot-banging sound.
Evoking the afro-funk of Mulatu Atstake, the exuberant folk of Flook, and the blues of Junior Wells without ever sounding contrived or unoriginal, Honeyfeet have in Ríoghnach Connolly one of the most striking frontwomen on the scene at the moment (“Seldom has conspicuous greatness been more accessible” – Mike Butler, City Life).
Honeyfeet released their debut EP “Little Boat” on Debt Records last year, with full length album “It’s a Good Job I Love You” to follow in summer 2013.
