Woodenbox with a Fistful of Fivers

avatar for Woodenbox with a Fistful of Fivers

Woodenbox with a Fistful of Fivers are a folk-rock-soul sextet of pan-Scottish provenance. Singer and guitarist Ali Downer assumed the moniker 'Woodenbox' , in a nod to influences such as King Creosote and ‘Bonnie’ Prince Billy and the addition of The Fistful of Fivers reflects a collective appreciation of Ennio Morricone’s scores for the spaghetti westerns of Sergio Leone.
The band's debut album, released on Electric Honey (Belle & Sebastian, Snow Patrol, Biffy Clyro) in April 2010 is entitled 'Home and the Wildhunt', a reference to the Celtic legend of 'The Wild Hunt'.
Praise and plays, including the accolade of BBC Radio 2 single of the week, make the forthcoming sophomore album, recorded in October 2011 with Paul Savage (Franz Ferdinand, The Phantom Band, Arab Strap) in the legendary Chem 19 studios, one of the most hotly-anticpated of 2012.
