Honey Lung - Post Modern Motorcade Music EP
Published: 9:39 pm, September 16, 2020Words: Jake Hawkes.

As band after band push their releases back to a time when we aren't all locked down, Honey Lung are here to fill the gap with their new EP 'Post Modern Motorcade Music', and it's pretty much what you'd expect from the scuzzy garage rockers – scuzzy garage rock.

Well, half of it is. 'Getting Off' and 'Name' offer a lot less fuzz than the standard Honey Lung track and provide a surprisingly good melodic curveball to the band's usual output. Unfortunately, this novelty starts to wear thin by 'Big', the third track in the same vein, and the paint-by-numbers approach of 'Be My Friend' and 'Juggle' bizarrely end up feeling like a breath of fresh air.

'Post Modern Motorcade Music' is a solid outing for Honey Lung and one that sees them tentatively dipping a toe outside their comfort zone (although admittedly not very far outside it). Having said that, a five-track EP should feel raw and pacey, leaving you wanting more. It's not a bad collection of songs, but it's far less exciting than it needs to be to leave a lasting impression.

A rare bright point in a pretty damn difficult year, BENEE's arrival has been a serotonin shot in the arm. With her debut album finally here, the future looks brighter already.

Sundara Karma have fast become one of the most interesting, inventive band of their class. With a new EP, some all-star collaboration and an outlook that constantly moves forward, the journey to album three is afoot.
