Hands of the Heron

Hands of the Heron is an alt-folk project from Bristol, UK. Their instantly recognisable vocal harmonies are delivered by four frontwomen, each of whom brings a signature writing style to the band’s mercurial sound. They move effortlessly between sparse choral folk and spellbinding chamber pop, richly layered with violin, saxophone, clarinet, flute, accordion, guitars and banjo.

Their second album 13 Moons was released in February 2021, and has been gathering widespread praise from fans and critics alike. 13 Moons is “a wondrous collection of curious story-songs, choral singing and carefully layered instrumentation” (Joyzine) with “songwriting mastery that perfectly delivers reverberating folk-pop” (Tap The Feed).
