Music Crowns are thrilled to have teamed up with Musicians Against Homelessness to introduce a number of exceptional bands and artists to millions of music fans each month. We’re equally as thrilled to announce that ambassadors The Pagans S.O.H have been chosen as one of our Musicians Against Homelessness Spotlighted Artists.
Since releasing their debut single, ‘Banananah’ to critical acclaim in December of last year, West Bromwich four-piece The Pagans: Shepherds of Humanity (S.O.H) have been on the radar of many a tastemaker. After all, the band don’t simply make music. They make it their mission to take their listeners on a voyage of discovery into the uncharted waters of innovative style and sound. Their live shows, in particular, have caught the attention of industry legends, including The Verve drummer, Pete Salisbury, who described their live sets as being “like going on the best magical, mystery tour.”
Directed by Sam Crowston and shot in the sleepy North Wales village of Portmeirion, the video for ‘Banananah’ provides a subtle nod to 1960s cult classic TV show, ‘The Prisoner’, which was filmed in the same location. Watch it below.
Founded by Emma Rule and launched by former Oasis manager Alan McGee in 2016, Musicians Against Homelessness began as a series of 100 gigs which saw up-and-coming bands performing alongside established artists, all whilst raising funds for Crisis and other homeless charities.
Since MAH launched, they have put on close to 1,000 gigs, have had numerous festival stages and up to 3,000 artists performing for them. By the end of this year, they hope to have raised close to £300,000.
