Hanterhir means half long in Cornish, but as a band, their music to some in Cornwall and a growing number of people worldwide means a lot of different things.
They have a large following in Cornwall and last year released a concept album, The Saving of Cadan.
The thread, the storyline, is concerned with a boy, Caden, who tries to drown himself in a lake on Carn Marth, an ancient hill in West Cornwall.
He is saved by Morwenna, the Lady of the Lake and a cursed spirit.
The tale, recounted through the songs, is told in a mixture of English and Cornish.
”The Saving of Cadan” reached no 39 in Louder Than War magazine top 100 albums of last year.
Often described as psychedelic folk, space rock, freak rock, forest punk and a growing list of comparisons to other bands – “in places not a million miles from Mogwai, in others redolent of the Pixies loud bits and elsewhere Television “.
“Genre-bending, from avant-garde to post-punk sound bites and definitely psychedelic”. Just a few comments from reviews for last years album.
You never know what you’ll get with Hanterhir, so you’ll have to make your own minds up!
