Honeyblood - Babes Never Die
Honeyblood are back in formidable form. The Glasgow two-piece - front-woman Stina Tweeddale and drummer Cat Myers release their second album, the emphatically titled Babes Never Die. The follow-up to their eponymous debut, Honeyblood which arrived in 2014 as a surprise splash, crash-landing into many of the year's most revered Best of Lists, with near-perfect score reviews from everyone from NME to DIY, and Mojo to Uncut. Ready for The Magic is a remarkable introduction to Honeyblood 2.0. Both one of their most intense and most intensely catchy tracks to date. It's detuned doom riffage and disco-punk rhythms make space for a tornado of a chorus ode to "the explosive nature of infatuation". The album was recorded with acclaimed producer James Dring (Jamie T, Gorillaz) during candle-burning sessions at London's Fish Factory studios. "The title is my own mantra," Stina says. "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.
