Steafán Hanvey and The Honeymoon Junkies
Steafán Hanvey and the Honeymoon Junkies’ beautifully crafted debut realises its official U.S. release this week on Chicago label, ‘Southern Love Records’.
In conjunction with the U.S. release, Fuse On Demand, a free Video on Demand service, that is part of Fuse Music Network and Madison Square Garden Media will begin airing “Desperation”, from the debut on October 24.
“Steafán Hanvey’s debut is a rare delight; of an “Impressive quality”. “His song craft is shot through a wide-eyed optimism”. Of ‘Hundred Days of Snow', a track from the album; “an uplifting swirl of dissonance and sunshine”. – HOTPRESS Music Magazine
Since the Irish release of his debut, Steafán has been busy focusing more intently on audience building in the USA, in particular NY, VT, MA and IL. He toured those regions four times in the last 2 years, taking in venues like Rockwood Music Hall, Pete’s Candy Store & Arlene’s Grocery in NY, the Lizard Lounge & Showcase live in MA, where he opened for Irish rock legends The Hothouse Flowers in 2010, and more recently, headlining Chicago’s Uncommon Ground and Elbo Room.
In between sojourns from Ireland to the U.S. Steafán has spent the last 3 years recording his sophomore album titled Nuclear Family. Recorded in Paris, Helsinki, and Dublin, the album is mixed by Tore Johansson [Martha Wainwright/Franz Ferdinand/Cardigans], mastered by Mandy Parnell [Sigor Ros/Nick Cave/Feist] and features guest appearances by Liam Ó Maonolaí [Hothouse Flowers], Bertrand Belin and the Papenfus brothers, Carl & Ken of Relish. It also features three co-writes with the Relish lads. Nuclear Family is due to be released in early 2012.
The music clip for what will be the album’s lead single, ‘Secrets and Lies’, (directed by Austria’s Karin Hammer) was recently selected from 1700 videos for the kinolounge special program of the 22nd Sao Paulo International Short Film Festival which took place August 25th to September 2nd, 2011).
