Folk rock quartet Hot Feet are in a very good position to launch their debut EP this month. The Wood House EP was produced by long-time Laura Marling sideman Pete Roe, and it comes just ahead of Hot Feet’s UK tour alongside Emily and the Woods, Sam Brookes and Pete Roe himself. Combined with attention from Communion Records, Chess Club and Lucy Rose who are all among this young band’s fans, it’s a wonder most of us haven’t already heard of them. It seems like we soon will.
The music goes from the quietness and delicacy of sixties folk to the hoedown vibes of the modern folk world; something of Mumford and Sons combined with something of Joni Mitchell. Soaring vocals, breathtaking harmonies and fantastic finger-picking guitar create something truly special in the five tracks that make up Wood House.
