My Favourite Albums of 2016: #16 Honeyblood - Babes Never Die
Second album in and Honeyblood once again find themselves on the list of my end of year favourites just as they did in 2014. Despite a line-up change (Cat Myers replacing Shona McVicar on drums) Babes Never Die doesn’t go on any radical shift in sound from the self-titled debut, but does manage to be more confident, more empowered and possesses a greater clarity. Of course, it also features some great songs, particularly on the venomous and rallying title track and the hard riffing Ready For The Magic. If anyone thinks that indie rock is dead, this is a forceful and potent argument against that.
