As you grow older death is something that slowly creeps into your mindset as a growing inevitability, as does, for a lot of people, indifference and the idea that sometimes it’s better just to accept things, even if they’re wrong, because you can’t fight everything forever – life is too short to be angry all the time.
Thankfully Honeyblood are still full of youthful venom with the rallying-cry of Babes Never Die, the title track from their second album due out 4th November via Fat Cat. The first time I experienced this song was just over a year ago at Somersault Festival in Devon and even at that point it lodged so firmly in the head that by the time I heard it a second time, at Guildford’s Boileroom last week, it felt like a riled up old friend. Both times it sounded like a single, and now here it is; a punchy kick-ass anthem and then some. Warning: this one’s an earworm.
