The Prophet Hens are the Dunedin 4 piece band through Fish Rider Records who are back with their 2nd album ‘The Wonderful Shape of Back Door Keys.’
‘The Wonderful Shape of Back Door Keys’ is full of melodic jangling guitars, swirling Casio keyboards & the voices of Penelope Esplin and Karl Bray singing upliftingly melancholic songs about hope & despair, joy & regret, ambition & reality, coming together & drifting apart.
Their 1st album ‘Popular People Do Popular People’ made its mark around the world being praised as “psychédélisme plaintif” by French music weekly Les Inrockuptible.
They were also given 10/10 in reviews by UK mailorder specialists Norman Records’ staff and customers, and also featured on BBC 6Music shows by Marc Riley and Gideon Coe
