Honeyblood crashed onto the scene in 2014 with their critically acclaimed debut album and have since remained one of Glasgow’s most exciting bands.
‘Ready For The Magic’ is the first single from their upcoming second album and introduces a more polished-sounding Honeyblood – but don’t worry, that grungey 90’s vibe is definitely still there.
There’s plenty of reverb and distortion, coupled with Stina Tweedale’s instantly recognisable style which perfectly blends slick vocals with indignant shouts and sugary harmonies with drummer Cat Myers.
The band describe the track as “discopunk” and that perfectly sums up how they add a raw, frantic edge to a song that really makes you want to dance.
‘Ready For The Magic’ is insanely catchy, and when it’s this good you won’t be complaining about it being stuck in your head.
The band’s next album, Babes Never Die, has just been announced for release in November; so catch them at The Hug and Pint next month if you can because it won’t be long until they’re selling out much bigger venues.
