‘Hanami Family – Finest Folk from Travelling souls’
English Cosmic psych folksters Hanami Family return with their second album ‘Lunar Ticks’ to go with the birth of their second child ‘ ….. The voices interweave effortlessly with the harmonies fused tightly from 12 years of travelling and playing around the world with a plethora of instruments from musical saws, 12 string guitars to singing bowls. Together Keeley and John have honed the art of writing a great song, however it’s the honesty and confidence that comes from writing music simply for the love of it that sets this record free. From bittersweet gentling sung playful melodies to trippy pounding feral psych folk reminiscent of early fairport covention, incredible string band and Captain Beefheart this record is a joy from start to finish. Mixed and masterded by Joel Magill ( Syd Arthur) and released by Smugglers Records UK and Celebration Days Records France on the 4th of May 2018.
