Glaswegian alt-rock duo Honeyblood consists of Stina Tweeddale on guitar/vocals and Cat Myers on drums. Having recently released their second album Babes Never Die, Honeyblood have announced their first trip to Australia.
First show will be in Sydney at Oxford Art Factory on Thursday 30th March followed by The Brightside in Brisbane on Friday 31st March and finishing up in Melbourne at Curtin Hotel on Saturday 1st April.
Taking inspiration from dark and cloudy ’90s indie rock luminaries like PJ Harvey and Sonic Youth. Tweeddale formed the band in early 2012 with original drummer Shona McVicar. Having signed to Fat Cat, the band released their self titled debut in 2014, which crash-landed into many of the year’s most revered Best Of lists, with near-perfect score reviews from everyone from NME to DIY, and Mojo to Uncut.
After touring with the likes of the Foo Fighters and Wolf Alice in 2015, Honeyblood returned to the studio with producer James Dring (Jamie T, Gorillaz). The band’s fiery second album, Babes Never Die, arrived November 2016 through Fat Cat/Cooking Vinyl. 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 and Haim.
“The Scottish duo are on fighting, clattering form with the first track from their forthcoming second album, coming over like 1990s grunge-punks L7 meting modern-day rockers Dredge.” – NME, Track of the Week
“Taking no prisoners, it’s a punchy, sharp-elbowed return, fuzzed-up riffs barrelling their way straight back into the spotlight.” – DIY
“It’s fuzzed up, 90s-indebted indie rock that’ll make you wanna mosh and destroy stuff and do shots and headbang and run real fast and ride your bike with your hands nowhere near the handlebars.” – Noisey
“A robust new offering rammed with grit and confidence.” – The Line of Best Fit
