This slid under Sly Vinyl’s radar a wee bit, but as of right now it’s brought to the surface. This is the debut single on Fatcat Records from Glasgow, Scotland duo Honeyblood – in fact, this is the first release ever from the two. Stina Tweeddale is the voice you hear on “Bud” and “Kissing On You,” and she provides the sunny guitar; Shona McViccar provides the drums on both tracks. The production is by Rory Attwell (who was a part of Test Icicles – a punk band Dev Hynes aka Blood Orange was in) who’s had a hand in production for Palma Violets, Veronica Falls and Yuck, among others, and it really shows in these two songs. “Bud” is a song juxtaposed with, as Fatcat described it, “bittersweet” lyricism and beach-y instrumentation and “Kissing On You,” the B-side, turns in to an aggressive anthem about, well, sex and being addicted to a lover. If you like Best Coast, Dum Dum Girls, Vivian Girls or anything along those lines, you should probably give Honeyblood a chance. Check out both songs below, along with a live rendition of “Kissing On You,” via the YouTube links and see what you think of them. Cheers!
