So, this is a band now or what?
It is, although the bandleader remains the driving force behind it, especially with this voice. Still, it sounds fuller and more focussed.
No more simple bonfire sounds?
Intimate moments are still alive (Red Stains, A Boy) but the joyful groovy sing-a-long folk of the full band truly makes the difference.
Don’t mind the German heritage. HONIG‘s raw vocals make Marcus Mumford sound like a choirboy. Should work great on stages all over Europe.
HONIG‘s album ‘It’s Not A Hummingbird, It’s Your Father’s Ghost’ evolves his gentle folk songs into a fuller and more focussed band sound without losing its honesty.
