Five Fathoms Deep have just released their EP 'Inglenook' which is NOW available on all major streaming services! 

Who are Five Fathoms Deep? Five Fathoms Deep are the lovechild of Bear and Bull, Alice Marie Edwards and Tall Tree Tales. We met like all good modern romances, over the internet, we had our first date at Antenna studios in crystal palace and haven't looked back since! It was our one year anniversary last week. 

Who came up with the band name and does it have a story or any meaning behind it? The Band name is a sort of misremembered garbled Shakespeare (the best kind). From the Tempest, "Full Fathom Five thy Father Lies," we were looking for something all 9 of us could agree on, and that name stuck!

If you had to describe the band using just five words, what would they be? Honey drenched harmonies with narrative. (Corr, that English GCSE didn't go to waste)

Who are your biggest influences musically? It's hard to say as we're all from massively different backgrounds both musically and generally, as cliched as it sounds to try and not be cliched, we do our best to stand away and be ourselves, a bit of Folk tradition combined with a bit of modern sensibilities. We've been called Arcade Fire meets the Pogues and we don't mind that at all!

If you could go on tour with any current band or artist, who would it be and why? The Oh Hellos, they are the embodiment of everything that is right with modern music. Not exaggerating.

If people want to check you out online where is the best place to go? is our hearty little home and has links to all the preferred social medias. You will also be able to find our First EP inglenook on Spotify and Apple music from the 25th of July!

Finally, What does the future hold for the band? We've got our headline show with Hot Vox at Hoxton SQ Underbelly which we are mad excited for! We are releasing our EP today and we have Folk East and Greenbelt coming so we're super excited about those too, EP 2 is being recorded on the 28/29th of July with Tom Donovan, we've got so much on right now its an absolute blast.

Have a listen to 'Inglenook' on Spotify!
