Their single ‘Bud’ has just been released and they have recently just been on UK tour, I caught up with Glasgow based Honeyblood.
How long have you been making music together?
We started the band around the beginning of 2012. I’d been writing a few songs before that but didn’t have our first gig till Feb and then we released our tape in April.
Is there a story behind the name?
It comes from a few things… i think it fits our bittersweet nature. It’s also a lyric from a Hole song.
Who are your musical influences?
The Breeders, Throwing Muses, PJ Harvey, Jenny Lewis and Morrissey… to name a few!
Funniest thing that’s ever happened at a gig?
We crashed our car in London last week before our single launch at Servant Jazz Quarters. It wasn’t funny at the time but we’re laughing about it now.
What was it like signing a deal with FatCat?
It’s been great. Fat Cat are like a family. We’ve had an absolute ball working with them to date so hopefully it can only get better with the album.
You’ve just released the single ‘Bud’, what’s on the cards for the future?
Yep, so we’re away to America this week to record an album which should be out next year.
And finally, do you have any advice for up and coming musicians?
Always play as loud as you can.
