“High Shoulders Everywhere” captures the true soul of this record: a colossal sound, so intense, so rich and so powerful, that seems too big for two musicians. The vocals are gritty, earthy and fiery. The guitar riffs are raw and deep, yet precise and to the point. The drums, with their unstoppable hand-clapping beat, create a contagious rhythm that keeps you on your toes for the entire song.
The Clifford brothers comment: “Starting like a thunderstorm aggressively stamping its authority over the daybreak with no respite. Relentless pounding drums with fuzzy spiky slide guitar. It’s only over when the fat lady dies.”
With “Smart Phone Rabbit Hole” Henry’s Funeral Shoe created a modern, complex yet familiar record; filled with no fillers, the listener is taken on a powerful roller-coaster ride through the best of British rock ‘n’ roll. Anchored in today’s music landscape, each and every track on the album is bursting with energy, pulsating with a stomping beat and is masterfully led by the unique vocals of front man Aled. 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.
Formed by two Welsh brothers in 2008, Henry’s Funeral has been inspired and influenced by many of the albums 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.
