Artist bio

Honeyblood are Stina Marie Claire Tweeddale and Cat Myers. The Scottish-based two-piece released their eponymous, debut LP, in 2014 on FatCat Records

Recorded at legendary producer Peter Katis Tarquin Studios (The National, Interpol) in just ten days last November, Honeyblood is an accomplished and delightfully fierce record. "Peter was the perfect match for us," Stina said of the recording. "He perfectly managed to capture our live performance in the studio. These songs represent good times for us."

Despite their minimal setup, Honeyblood's songs are fully formed and perfectly assured. With nothing extraneous, their music is driven through tightly-bound instrumentals and laced with the sheer strength and beauty of Stina's voice. The songs resonate with deep melodic hooks and the kind of uncomplicated charm that've drawn contemporary comparisons to the likes of the Dum Dum Girls, as well as the strident delivery of Jenny Lewis. The band also tellingly cite the darker currents of The Breeders, PJ Harvey and Throwing Muses as lifelong influences.
