We’re delighted to be helping Honeyfeet launch their new album at Gorilla!

Join Honeyfeet as they celebrate the launch of their second album, Orange Whip! For a good few years, Honeyfeet has been a conduit for the ideas and expressions of an exotic mixture of Manchester-based musicians. Jazz? Yes, some of that! Folk? Stick that in there! Hip-hop? I thought you’d never ask!

Someone once called it Folk-Hop and Barrelhouse-pop, and that’s just vague enough to make sense. Honeyfeet have spent the past nine years tearing around festival stages and theatres, clubs and fields melting down blues and pop, jazz and disco, pushing air molecules around with instruments and making friends in the process. It’s all very lovely. It helps that they are fronted by Ríoghnach Connolly, ‘a remarkable singer and flautist who… can ease from Irish traditional influences to soul,’ according to the Guardian.

This festival season has seen Honeyfeet perform main stages at Shambala, Beautiful Days and Belgium’s Copacobana Festival, along with wowing audiences at Glastonbury, Boomtown, Wilderness, Secret Garden Party, Kendal Calling and Bimble Bandada.

Honeyfeet are proud to be part of the Wah Wah 45 family. The single Sinner was released in October 2017, with Whatever You Do following in early March 2018. Their new album, Orange Whip, will be launched in late March 2018.

Support comes from Shunya. Shunya – aka Alan Keary – is an Irish-born multi-instrumentalist and producer. His sound is an amalgamation of influences, ranging from his early musical background of classical violin to the sounds of Manchester’s electronic music scene. Over the years Shunya has collaborated and played with Josephine Oniyama, Werkha and, more recently, DJ Yoda and The Breakfast Of Champions.

‘We’ve been watching Shunya since he first started out. His latest EP Mountain Gazer is a massive leap forward in both production and composition. Definitely one to watch out for’ – GoGo Penguin

DJ support throughout the evening comes from Coops.

This is a 14+ show. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
