an delightfully fierce debut from the Glasgow 2-piece Honeyblood who count the likes of PJ Harvey & Sonic Youth as inspirations.
From the urgent guitar & dive-bomb drums of opener 'Fall Forever', the album twists through the gutsy punk of 'Killer Bangs', to reveal discordant anthems like 'Super Rat'. It has pared down alt pop gems in the likes of 'Biro' & 'No Spare Key', but also more country/folk influenced moments like, '(I'd Rather Be) Anywhere But Here', 'Braid Burn Valley' & 'Bud'. recommended for fans of big deal, fear of men & joanna gruesome. "a vague hint of The Vaselines, nice touch of Velvets two-chord simplicity & even bit of Moz (solo, circa 'Viva Hate') chucked in for good measure in the melody" NME, "Sounding like something from a California dream." The Fader, “irresistibly perky two-minute popsmarts” MOJO.
