Glasgow-based two-piece Honeyblood impressed us at this year’s Great Escape in Brighton with their rough and tumble garage rock sound. Now Stina Marie Claire Tweeddale (vocals, guitar and greatest name ) plus Shona McVicar (drums) are releasing a single proper called Bud via Brighton’s FatCat Records on pink vinyl together with digital download. The track was produced by Rory Atwell who has worked with other notable indie guitar bands such as Palma Violets and Veronica Falls.
Despite hailing from Scotland, there’s a very American sound to Bud. We hear touches of The Breeders and Throwing Muses in their glorious shambles as well as the closer to home North-Eastern lipstick, glitter and leopard print rock of Kenickie (who featured all round media top person Lauren Laverne amongst their line up) on the good as the a-side b-side of Kissing On You.
We’re streaming both the video for Bud, which was filmed at Great Brampton House just outside Hereford as well the Soundcloud for Kissing On You.
Honeyblood play a number of UK shows this week. Dates are 24th Oct - Boiler Room, Guildford, 26th Oct - Sticky Mikes, Brighton, 27th Oct - Fallow, Manchester , 29th Oct – Glasgow Broadcast and 30th Oct – Edinburgh Electric Circus. If you're seeing them in Guildford tonight, we'll see you there.
