As part of a Record Store Day special way back on April 20th, we were absolutely delighted to kick off the show with Stina and Shona from Glasgow-based thrashing girl-duo Honeyblood before their set at Vox Box Records. We were treated to two new songs soaked in surf as well the terrific Super Rat which has been getting regular airtime on both on In Session and my new Scottish music show on Castle FM.
We chatted with the girls about their releases to date (a tape release on CATH Records which is now sold out), composing songs and the role of bad people, good people, and life in general which gives meaning to their songs, and the suitability of their “garage crunch-pop” label.
Before they play the T- Break stage at T In The Park, you can catch Honeyblood performing live in Glasgow on June 28th at The Old Hairdressers.
