New Music Monday: Honeyblood

Stina Tweeddale, the lead singer and guitarist of Glaswegian duo Honeyblood, says that she wants to write “gruesome romance stories rather than whiny love songs.” There’s certainly nothing whiny about the band’s latest single, the infectious “Sea Hearts,” though the love at its core isn’t gruesome, either. It’s about “the type of friendship that makes you feel invincible,” says Tweeddale. “Together you can weather any heartbreak and in turn, cause havoc.” Fittingly, “Sea Hearts” hits like an endorphin rush. Tweeddale’s guitar is fuzzy grunge fun, her melody is as catchy as a pop song, and drummer Cat Myers provides both pep-squad harmony and a crashing wall of drums that give the song precisely the havoc Tweeddale imagined. 

“Sea Hearts” is the second single from Honeyblood’s sophomore album Babes Never Die, out October 28th on Fat Cat Records
