U.K. band Mann Friday’s Song/Video appeal to Emily Eavis for Glastonbury 2015

New Single/Video “Say Yeah! (Emily Eavis)” from Mann Friday is the band’s musical appeal to Glastonbury’s organizer, Emily Eavis, to book the band for Glasto 2015.

Mann Friday is fresh from headlining a sell out show at Shepherds Bush EmpireThe Forum and the Islington Academy in London recently and this video is a direct appeal to get the attention to Emily Eavis to book a band with one of the best underground followings in the capital for Glasto 2015.


To coin a phrase like Alternative Afro-Folk-Rock is pretty difficult – and quite a mouthful, but it seems Mann Friday might have done so.

Hailing from South Africa, Italy and …wait for it …Zimbabwe(!), and bound together by a decade on the London rock scene, Mann Friday have forged a triumphant alloy of Brit grit and African optimism.

 The self-propelled rockers boast a litany of achievements including five studio albums, near sell-out performances at premiere venues such as The O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, The Forum and Islington Academy – all supported savagely by an army of loyalist fanns.
One scalp they haven’t taken though, is a lifelong dream to play at the hallowed Glastonbury Festival. Their new single Say Yeah!, out since January 15th 2015, is a stirring call to action and the accompanying video an explosive appeal to Glastonbury organizer Emily Eavis to book the band at this year’s festival.
Say Yeah! is the perfect combination of rock and folk that is full of energy.  It’s a blinder, combining percussion and guitar riffs into a richly layered mid-tempo melody that features a folk friendly drumbeat and rock undertones. The key is the vocal line, and not just melodically…
Let’s hope Emily Eavis jumps on board too, expect to see, hear and read a lot of buzz around Mann Friday in the coming weeks from NME to Uncut Magazine, amongst others.  C’mon, there’s nothing wrong with being ambitious.  See you at Glasto then.
