Fresh from touring with the likes of Real Estate, Courtney Barnett and Angel Olsen, Honeyblood's self-titled debut album is due for release 14th July via
FatCat. Recorded with legendary producer Peter Katis' (The National, Interpol) in ten days last November, 'Honeyblood' is an accomplished and delightfully fierce record.
Honeyblood are Shona McVicar on drums and Stina Tweeddale vocals / guitar. Despite their fledgling status and minimal setup, Honeyblood's songs are fully formed and perfectly assured. With nothing extraneous, their music is driven through tightly-bound instrumentals and laced with the sheer strength and beauty of Stina's voice. The songs resonate with deep melodic hooks and the uncomplicated charm that've drawn comparisons to the likes of The Dum Dum Girls, as well as the strident delivery of Jenny Lewis. The band also cite the darker currents of The Breeders, PJ Harvey and Throwing Muses as lifelong influences.
