Press Release: Honey Nothings to redefine their sound with their debut EP
"It's fun and upbeat ... and I love everything about this!" - Claire Mooney, Triple J
"You know you had me from the first breath of those treated vocals. Slinky '80s fabrics are the measure of this one, it's a good look on Honey Nothings." - David Ruby Howe - Triple J
Sydney indie pop outfit, Honey Nothings, are set to redefine their sound with their debut self-titled EP.
A product of the Covid-19 quarantine period, the EP was entirely produced and mixed in the bedroom studios of the individual members, leaving the recording rich in character and quirks. The contributions of co-producer Jerome Blaze can also be felt throughout the EP, lending his ear for otherworldy soundscapes to the band.
Their debut single, Edinburgh, has accrued over three hundred thousand plays, with notable success in the UK and EU.
Although the EP is an aesthetic right turn, sonic reinvention is not a new strategy for Honey Nothings, who have been pushing the boundaries since 2010. Playing support slots for industry giants such as Ocean Alley, Lime Cordiale and Hockey Dad all while in their early days, the band have no shortage of experience on which to draw.
To further promote the EP, the band have recorded a number music videos and acoustic renditions; including a performance based split screen clip for "Falling" by filmographer James Macintyre, and live acoustic versions with string arrangements filmed by Oliver Quirk. The two contrasting, but equally engaging renditions of the tracks speak to the band’s artistic depth.
The band will promote the release with a run of shows on the east coast of Australia, playing to crowds in Sydney, Newcastle, Wollongong and the Northern Beaches.
