Describe Your Sound




Jennifer Aslett


like any great adventure, the tale of Hootenanny began with two pals. One hot day in early 2010, Jennifer Aslett and Nanwyn Hunt were hanging out and happened to pick up a guitar and a pair of drum sticks. The result was a ferocious chemistry that no-one could have predicted: thundering garage rock beats, unforgiving fuzz riffs and explosive tag-team vocals delivering lyrics about owls, cats, chavs and robot rabbits. At the encouragement of Cameron Avery (of The Growl), the pair's hyperactive ad libs took shape; soon after, a phone recording of these early jams reached local doyenne of dirty blues, Abbe May, who offered the duo a gig. Hootenanny had officially left the nest. The first show was a loving riot fuelled by adrenaline and booze - the latter taking its toll the following morning as they motored up Great Eastern Highway, bucket in tow, to record their debut EP at Begerk! Studios.
