Featuring former members of Pyschic Ills and Amen Dunes, Honey are mainstays of Brooklyn’s thriving music culture. Over the past 5 years they have shared the stage with the likes of Dead Moon, J. Mascis, Sheer Mag, The Men, Destruction Unit, and more and have become a household name for everyone fiending for the raw authenticity that, thankfully, can still be found in NYC at the intersection of punk and rock and roll.

Its difficult to not fall out of love – Honey make it clear that even with its ferocious riffs and careening rhythms, New Moody Judy’s message is one of empathy. “Through that front door / I’ll find anything but love” Dan Wise sings from the gut – what person hasn’t experienced the futility of trying to escape from a feeling like that. Equally relatable, if slightly more uplifting, is the message of the album’s first single “Dream Come Now”, an anthem to never giving up on your dreams even when they seem out of reach.

Out September 29th on Wharf Cat Records, HONEY’S sophomore long player New Moody Judy builds on their debut’s “hard edged slice of rock noise” to create an album full of the pummel and swing, rave-ups and comedowns, and ferocious riffs and rhythms previously known only to those who have witnessed the power-trio’s live set. Equal parts concision and brute heaviness, this is the sound of perfect rock and roll music – music that’s always on the edge of spinning out of control.

From the first single, “the pugnacious ‘Dream Come Now’ a barnstormer every bit as fiery as the album artwork” to the tight jam giving way to a thrilling cascade of riffs that fuel the rush of ‘Hungry,’ HONEY give everything to the music on this release to deliver their most sonically diverse effort to date. As thematically cerebral as it is musically visceral, New Moody Judy is one of the rare albums that offers as much brain fodder for the lit majors as it does instant gratification for the guitar-heads.

HONEY BUNDLE - Honey - New Moody Judy & Love is Hard

There are quite a few bands or artists calling themselves Honey, but this one from New York City is the one you want to remember.  Featuring former members of Psychic Ills and Amen Dunes their new album, the trio’s second – “The New Judy Moody” starts off with the Hendrix-like jam rawk of “Wage Agreement” and then it’s killer rock and roll all the way through.

Take a song like “Dream Come Now“. It’s a buzz saw rocker with the heaviest guitars I’ve heard in a long time, and this is a trio!

PUMAROSA – ” Honey “

And so after about one minute of the track “Honey” by Pumarosa I was checking to see what the nearest date was to Nottingham so I could get the chance to see them live again.

“Honey” is brilliant. It’s  pretty much everything I like wrapped up into five minutes, slow-building, brooding and commanding track that shimmers, soars and thrills in equal measures amongst tight guitars and captivating vocals

Kid Wave’s swooning big rock single “Honey” reminds me of Swedish indie-pop vets Shout Out Louds—which makes a metric ton of sense, because surprise surprise, these dudes are from Sweden too. This anthemic song, which sounds like a gentler Oasis at times, is from the band’s forthcoming LP Wanderlust, which drops June 2nd via Heavenly Recordings.

“I remember wanting to write something with drive, something that would just keep moving forward, on and on like a train,” commented the band’s singer/songwriter Lea Emmery  “I’m a sucker for that sound and guitars chewing on the same chords. I find a sound or chord I like (often a lot of open strings) and like to keep it simple. As a person I tend to write and talk in really long sentences, like I think. But with music, its almost the opposite. I think we all need to float away from reality sometimes, some people more than others. Some do drugs, some dream, some overload themselves with work, some people do all of these and some don’t do anything. This song was written after some lonely years when every day felt the same and my own thoughts like my only companion. I’ve always been a bit of a dreamer and during this time I was probably living more of a fictional life in my head than in reality. But I think it kept me going.”
