South Wales rockers, Henry’s Funeral Shoe have announced their brand-new album “Smart Phone Rabbit Hole” due for release on 20th September 2019. To coincide with the new record announcement, the Welsh duo have also launched their latest single “Everybody Says Hi”.

Formed by two Welsh brothers in 2008, Henry’s Funeral Shoe has been inspired and influenced by many of the album’s singer/guitarist Aled Clifford looted from his father’s vinyl collection, such as: The Who, Credence Clearwater Revival, Peter Green, Robert Johnson and the Beatles. His younger brother Brennig started playing drums at nine and at fifteen joined a local band performing covers of classic rock legends, including: The Clash and Thin Lizzy. In 2008 the dexterous brothers joined forces to create some of the loudest soulful rock ’n’ roll to come out the UK in a long time.
Produced by Tim Hamill and Henry’s Funeral Shoe, “Smart Phone Rabbit Hole” showcases a mature band that has finely crafted their sound injecting contemporary rock with a blend of audacious and honest old-school bluesy rock, warm country vibes and soulful vocals.
Reflecting on the album the band comments:
“Rock ‘n’ roll songs peppered with some soul & country. Songs bursting to be the soundtrack to a night out and a cold pillow to a Sunday hangover. Think Primal Scream & Rory Gallagher at a lock in doing Stooges & Bowie on the karaoke.”
The blend of passionate rock and raw blues-feel seems to be woven into the fabric of the band’s soundscape, like an invisible thread that binds together the pounding opener “Everybody Says Hi”, the hand clapping upbeat “High Shoulders Everywhere”, the tender, almost country “Right Time”, the groovy “Same Boat Different Sale” and all the other tracks on the record. To close off this accomplished album and showcasing an even broader song writing is “Ball & Chain”, a track that creates an atmospheric, almost bucolic, epilogue to the entire record.
