Back in May, Hengistbury released catchy single, ‘What Folks Don’t Know’ to widespread acclaim with features, interviews and live performances on the likes of Russell Hill’s Country Music Show, Off the Record, The Music Scout, UK Country Music, Nexus Music Blog, Folking.com, Belles and Gals and right here on Craving Country. They were featured in Lyric Magazine’s Hottest Country and Spotify’s Country Mix 2018 playlists. They were also named Artist of the Week by Richer Unsigned and Q Magazine.
Now they’re back, with new single ‘Shooter on the Mound’ and a brand new, debut album, Add Another Minute.
Having formed in November 2017, Hengistbury – made up of Jessie Mary and Pete Briley – have been hard at work ever since, making their debut album Add Another Minute. Hengistbury have delved deep into the array of instruments available to them to create a sound that is “distinctly unique” (Nexus Music Blog) and “charmingly country” (Craving Country UK). Their unique ability shines through in each track, my personal favourites being the upbeat ‘Anybody’s Fool’ and ‘Don’t Leave’, each using harmonies and instruments to create their “charmingly country” sound. Each song from the album has something slightly different to offer, so give Add Another Minute a listen.Continue reading “Hengistbury Release Album Add Another Minute“
