London four-piece Honey Moon unveil new single (Why Do You Think You're So) Special?, their first release on Manchester tastemaker label Heist or Hit (Her's, Pizzagirl). Lazy guitars lilt their way through the first half of the tune, accompanied by skittish drums, connect-the-dots bass and vocalist Jack Slater-Chandler's primed falsetto, before an outlandish brass band outro takes the song to the stars.Self-described as a "60s-styled patchwork of a tune, quilting together a bittersweet tale of romantic longing", Honey Moon's is a sound for accompanying coming-of-age-montages in teen b-movies, or a slow coffee sat at the table where the light flickers in the corner of the diner.It's escapist croon-pop looking back at an American cultural decade with the rosiest tinted glasses - bookended by JFK's assassination and the Watergate scandal, and in close proximity to a large concentration of international wars, whether or not the innocence of these 'simpler times' truly existed is beside the point. The idealised memory is enough to run counter to the modern day stresses facing this generation up close and personal.In this vein, there's no lofty message nailed on through their music, merely reclamation of The Love Song, technically proficient and lovingly toiled over, but delivered in simple terms.Strutting around the gig venues of London town for a little while now, Honey Moon have built up worthy buzz in a low-key way, invites to perform at Glastonbury Festival and supports with Trudy and The Romance, Fake Laugh and GURR has cemented their status as exciting up-and-comers. Now though, the quartet are aiming higher with new tunes imbued with no little fanfare, and in tandem with record label and house of dreamers Heist or Hit.Honey Moon are .on the drums, Sam Roux, on the bass and vocals Joey Julliard, on guitar and vocals Zach Urch, and on guitar and lead vocals Jack Slater-Chandler.
