We got more great reviews in the post, which I have to say is humbling and uplifting at the same time! If you need any further excuse to grab the album, give it a read. Album comes with free hugs and a free (uh)… sense of having… purchased something. Scott says “After multiple listens, I cannot identify a song that stands out from the others, but that is true only because the songs all have such adeptly layered emotions and elements, such perfectly blended melancholy and hope, that each listen reveals new joy.”
Meanwhile in the States, Stereo Embers’ Dave Cantrell has this to say about the new album – “A preternatural talent for a certain by-now renowned Kiwi catchiness is a given when it comes to the Prophet Hens” Again, we’re humbled and grateful for all the support!
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!

Hello Australia & Canada!
“Popular People” has been playlisted on the Australian/Canadian radio show Stranded. Being on the same playlist as UMO and Dimmer makes us happy.
So, on my journey to find a picture of a baby moose (because Canada), I found out something interesting. Did you know Canada has about 1 million moose? I discovered that fact on mooseworld.com. Their site is partially about seeing how the metaphor of “moose” can make lives better and happier. I thoroughly encourage you to check out their website – it even has a moose of the day, every day. I’m not quite sure how I can apply the metaphor of “moose” in my life, but I’m sure going to try. Any way of celebrating all things Canadian can only be a good thing, like drinking maple syrup straight from the bottle. Now that’s the good life.
We made Radio Control 99.4 Top 10!
We’re officially a massive fan of Palmerston North. Sharing the love.
NZ Top 10 time all thanks to the beautiful people at NZ On Air Music.

Otago Daily Times says hey
Our local newspaper, the Otago Daily Times, has an article about us. Sam Valentine said some pretty choice words about us. He’s an excellent musician in his own right, so we’re pretty stoked.
Our new single has been played on an Australian student radio station, in Castlemaine Victoria. The show is called “It’s a Jangle out there” – how awesome is that name!! The show host (Josh Meadows) plays a range of excellent music too. Check it out: http://mainfm.net/shows/its-a-jangle-out-there/. https://jangleoutthere.wordpress.com/2016/05/05/playlist-for-thursday-5-may-2016/
The new Prophet Hens single has been playlisted on the Spanish blog Bloodbuzzed. Raul called it ” the exciting new tune of dear Prophet Hens from our beloved Fishrider Records.” Thanks Raul!
When You Motor Away
The Prophet Hens has been featured on When You Motor Away Blog from the United States! Thanks Scott and the lovely folk at WYMA. Scott wrote “While the jangle pop approach remains, “Popular People” has a more upbeat feel, and has us eager to hear the rest of the album.” I’ve included an image of a sleepy panda because it’s pretty great http://whenyoumotoraway.blogspot.co.nz/…/popular-people-by-…
People are talking about us!
Good things only of course. We feel pretty special!
I initially posted this without a animal, but it didn’t seem right, so here are some cute red pandas! Our label manager of Fishrider Records, Ian, tells me that pandas are one of the most popular animals on the internet…but how awesome are red pandas?!
