Hailing from sunny East Kilbride where there are more roundabouts than human beings, Honeyvale released their new single ‘Mercurial’ last month. A raucous 2 minutes 50 seconds of classic indie-pop; Mercurial is a tale of love, dancefloors and stolen lighters, told in the dappled light of an early Sunday morning, when optimism prevails and the hangover hasn’t yet kicked in.
The band just released a video for ‘Mercurial’
‘Mercurial’ is taken from their forthcoming debut EP, ‘Polo Mint City’ (a local nickname for East Kilbride), and is set for release in early 2020. The EP was produced and mixed by fellow Scot, Darren Lawson (Spiritualized, Alfie Templeman, White Lies).
There’s nothing contrived or try-hard about Honeyvale. The sound of four lifelong friends growing up together and making a racket, honing their song writing into something that swaggers between the slick, accomplished pop of bands like the Walkmen, the youthful social commentary of Sam Fender or the unabashed melodicism of Stereophonics and latter-era Kings of Leon; they’re a ban with stadium ambitions grinding their way up from the bottom.
