Annibus says “is a bouquet of beautiful songs that will make your day…is the perfect album to go with a a morning coffee.” Thanks Stylianos Tziritas!
Here is a full translation:
Hey, what does that sound reminds me of? What does it remind me of…? Then you take a closer look and see that their record company is Fishrider in New Zealand. The Prophet Hens are from New Zealand and have a fresh sound, a strangely-fragrant blend of pop and paisley, owing a debt to other craftsmen from that country such as The Bats and The Clean.
What you will find here, on the strangely-entitled The Wonderful Shapes of Back Door Keys, is a bouquet of beautiful songs that will make your day, it’s not just the melody but also the roughness when they decide to go that way. There is a “good-time garage” feel to songs like (the wonderful) Drunk in a Park.
The band feature female and male vocals trading lines at the microphone as the song requires, which gives some really enjoyable sonic textures. Another element I really liked is the fact that it’s properly mastered. Soft and none of the “brick-wall” stuff we hear from major indie bands who are jealous of the mainstream.
This, the second Prophet Hens record, is the perfect album to go with a a morning coffee.
I hope now that they have European distribution we will see them playing live in Europe soon.
