Honeyblood is a duo from Glasgow comprised of singer/guitarist Stina Tweeddale and drummer Shona McVicar*. The band have recently released their debut self-titled LP and are currently making waves on the live circuit.
I’ve heard the record a few times now, it’s a lo-fi and hook laden affair, reminiscent of bands like The Breeders and Bethany Cosentino’s surf-pop outfit Best Coast (of whom I know the band are big fans).
The album highlight for me is track 2, ‘Killer Bangs’, a song that wastes no time and throws everything at you from the start. Clattering drums, crunchy guitars and Tweeddale’s heart wrenching lyrics are enough to let you know that Honeyblood mean business.
