The banger count leading into Honeyblood’s second album is already reading two for two.
The banger count leading into Honeyblood’s second album is already reading two for two. Following up on the breathless rampage of first cut ‘Ready For The Magic’, the fact that ‘Sea Hearts’ is down half a gear doesn’t make it a slow burner.
Still frantic, still fantastic, it’s proof of a duo that do no wrong. “We’ll break hearts that get in our way” the lyrics threaten, no sense of irony apparent or required. The noise around some bands may be louder or shinier, but few, if any, are as consistently brilliant as this.
With a record packed full of similarly amazing cuts, justice would see Scotland anointing another set of indie heroes before the year is out. Even if they don’t, don’t expect to escape alive.
