ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
'Drink Alone' is a tale of love gone wrong... of loyalty tested... of a relationship so spectacularly destructive that the only sensible course is to curl up inside a bottle until it's all over. We've all got a friend who's been there - this song is dedicated to a friend who took what didn't kill him, and used it to make himself stronger.

Ringlefinch formed in December 2012 at the exact moment the Mayans had predicted the world would end. A London sextet, they’re not what you'd expect from a band named after a kind of Norwegian troll, or from a band whose first live show
was in the room where Churchill celebrated the end of the Second World War. But what should you expect if you mix a banjo and ukulele-juggling singer-songwriter, a flamenco percussionist, a trad folk guitarist, a classical violist, and a bassist and a
mandolinist united in their love of alternative rock?

Dark-humoured, wittily introspective lyrics set to upbeat, quirky earworm tunes.

The toe-tapping rhythms of swing and jazz manouche - but with a thoroughly folk sensibility.

An exciting, rabble-rousing live show, peppered with moments of subtle beauty.

Ringlefinch ambled onto the London folk scene in summer 2013 like Godzilla in a party mood, and within 6 months were headlining the Folk Stage for Chiswick Oxjam - helping them to raise more money for Oxfam than any of the other Oxjam events across the UK. Gigging extensively in the second half of 2013 (including headline sets at record label residencies, legendary punk venues, and a particularly memorable secret show at a hat-swapping party in Deptford...), they've developed
an energetic 26-string sound that has been described variously as "joyful, joyful rambunctious glory!" and "a lovely heartwarming clusterpluck".

This is one musical casserole that's far greater – far more tasty and compelling – than the sum of its ingredients.
