“I predict great things for Hot Feet” – Guy Garvey, 6Music
“Beautifully progressive and original with a nod to some of the greats. They are one of the best bands out there today.” – Folk Radio UK
Formed and based in Stroud, Gloucestershire, Hot Feet may be partly inspired by their rural surroundings, but their eclectic music hints at a darker and more complex world than the pastoral paradise you might expect. After the success of their debut EP, Wood House, the band are currently out on the road again with their second release, Mist Is Dust.
While touring extensively across the UK, taking up a year long London residency and picking up radio support from 6 Music’s Marc Riley and Guy Garvey, the band have shifted gear, moving well beyond traditional singer-songwriter territory to incorporate a range of disparate but complimentary influences. You’ll hear echoes of everything from delta blues and the pulsing rhythms of world music to 60s envelope-pushers like Pentangle, Davy Graham and Bert Jansch, soul, jazz and the chunky psychedelic funk of Can and other Krautrockers.
These new sonic developments, the band are quick to point out, are in no small part down to producer and sometime collaborator Pete Roe, who they first hooked up with after he saw them
performing at Glastonbury. Best known as longtime guitarist with Laura Marling as well as a solo performer in his own right, Pete has produced both their EPs to date.
