Honeymilk are an indie-rock act consisting of Marcus, Nikki and Erik. A blend between The Strokes, Ty Segall, Wilco and Velvets, the Sweden-based trio are about quality and energy alike. During their recording process, which took them only a few days to complete, the band had found numerous new ways to play around with various styles of music.
"We get inspired and capture sounds like frogs catch fireflies. We would never have used bongo drums a year ago", says Marcus. Yet despite their all bets are offattitude, the band remained true to the core of their sound.
Led by Erik's thumping drums and Nikki's hooky guitars, their sonic rawness is beautifully topped with Marcus' vocals that draw parallels to Julian Casablancas. In other words, Honeymilk's Let's Talk About Compassion is melodic and invigorating yet full of confined energy, and it is available for sale and download NOW.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
