Description

Honeyblood are a Glasgow two-piece comprised of Stina Tweeddale (vocals, guitar) and Shona McViccar (drums). The band recently signed to FatCat and are set to release their debut 7" single ''Bud'' / ''Kissing On You'' on the 21st October 2013. 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 kind of effortless charm that've drawn recent comparisons to the likes of Best Coast, Haim and Frankie Rose, as well as the swooning, strident delivery of more established artists like Jenny Lewis. While those are all decent touchstones for their triumphant debut single, the band also tellingly cite the darker currents of The Breeders, PJ Harvey and The Throwing Muses as lifelong influences. On ''Bud'', the band''s first vinyl release, their no-nonsense bittersweet pop has been captured to tape by Rory Atwell (Palma Violets, Veronica Falls). The rootsy, chanting glee of the A-side is backed with the urgent lo-fi punky charm of addictive B-side, ''Kissing on You''.
