Honeyblood Streams New Single 'Bud' Out October 22nd 2013 [Listen]

Honeyblood is the Glasgow, Scotland-based two-piece comprised of Stina Tweeddale (vocals, guitar) and Shona McViccar (drums). The band recently signed to FatCat and will release debut 7" single "Bud" on October 22. The no-nonsense bittersweet pop found on the track has been captured to tape by Rory Atwell (Palma Violets, Veronica Falls). The rootsy, chanting glee of the A-side will be backed with the urgent lo-fi punky charm of addictive B-side,"Kissing on You." These first two tracks are just the tip of the iceberg for Honeyblood, with a full length LP already underway.
 
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 have drawn recent comparisons to the likes of Best Coast and Haim, 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 Throwing Muses as lifelong influences.
 
Since their formation in early 2012, Honeyblood have rapidly ingrained themselves into the bustling Glaswegian scene, fast becoming one of its most talked-about names. The duo have supported acts including Palma Violets and Sleigh Bells, as well as performed at festivals everywhere from Brighton, UK's The Great Escape to their native T in The Park. But they started out with humble DIY beginnings, organizing their own guerrilla show at The Old Hairdressers in Glasgow to commemorate the release of a raucous two-track cassette entitled Thrift Shop, recorded in their kitchen with one mic. It was at that early show that FatCat first stumbled upon the band and their signing continues the Brighton-based label's strong run of picking up on the best new Scottish talent at a nascent stage. Honeyblood followThe Twilight Sad, Frightened Rabbit, We Were Promised Jetpacks and PAWS, all of whom were found from demos or early performances.
