Ant Mckenna and Alf are the Alt-Folk Country Samaritans bringing fun, awesome tunes and mayhem to venues throughout the land releasing their debut EP with a swag of shows along the East Coast.
Mandi McIntyre from Woodford Festival says, “When thinking of the quintessential Aus-folk-roots sound, it is hard to go past the good, honest story-telling fun that Alfanant bring to every show they play. Alfanant remind us all why we picked up guitars and started jamming with mates in the first place.”
The recording of “Lucky” is a special story. Instead of the usual hiring of a house on the beach through Air BnB, Alf decided to hire the renowned Brisbane Recording studio “Airlock” to celebrate his 45th year. He enlisted the services of Sound Recording Genius Yanto Browning and invited all of his friends (musically inclined or not) to help celebrate!
The result was “Lucky”; a four track piece of Alt-Folk/Country Magic!
From the heartbreaking title track “Lucky” of past losses and loves, the dynamic call to arms of “Comes a Time”, the intimate harmonies which take you into the cabin with the truckie as he drives you across the Nullabor in “2 Weeks”, to the final tongue in check, singalong-foot stomp of “Your Kind”.
This EP is a moment in time recorded by a couple of journeymen singer-songwriters. If you value quality and something a little bit “out of the box” from your songwriters, AlfanAnt’s Lucky EP will not only suffice, it will make you beg for more!
