Honeyblood Premiere Single “Sea Hearts”

Honeyblood Premiere Single "Sea Hearts", the track is off their album 'Babes Never Die'

Following the release single of “Ready For The Magic”, ahead of their new release Babes Never Die, the album comes out later this year.

For Honeyblood frontwoman Stina Tweeddale, the title of her band’s second album came from somewhere close to her heart, literally. “I have those words tattooed on my ribs.” she smiles. “I guess you could call it a war cry; to have the faith to never let yourself be defeated.” The album title is my own mantra, Stina explains of the follow-up to their 2014 debut, I think it’s something I tell myself every day. Indifference is a plague. Giving up and turning a blind eye will be the end of us. Never before has that been more true than now. Perhaps we should stare straight into the face of what frightens us and say that we will never let them win. When I use the word ‘Babe’ I don’t see it as gendered. I just wanted to share the phrase and the power it gives me. Saying that, like most Honeyblood lyrics, it is vaguely facetious.”

Recorded during several candle-burning stints at London’s Fish Factory studio in the winter of 2016, Stina and Cat were joined by acclaimed producer James Dring, whose work with the likes of Jamie T and Gorillaz made him an intriguing choice for the Scottish duo. Stina recalls of their trips down to meet Dring in North London. “He comes from a different place musically to anyone we’ve worked with before, which felt quite inspiring. He really listened to what we wanted to achieve, knew how to get the best out of us, and when he did bring in ideas they were things we’d never have thought of. ” Together they’ve managed to brilliantly capture then subtly refine and embellish the duo’s notorious live energy that over the past two years shared stages all round the globe with everyone from Belle And Sebastian close friends Courtney Barnett and Wolf Alice.
