Honey Lung’s Sweet EP

Honey Lung Sweet EPLondon indie rock quartet Honey Lung has been making waves all over the globe since their inception in 2015.

Despite having only a small back catalog of songs, they’ve amassed a respectable social media following.

The group released their first EP Kind of Alone in 2016, following up with the single “Sophomore” in August of 2017.

The band released a small handful of singles throughout 2018, the most recent being “Complete,” which dropped Jan. 25.

A music video for the single “Export the Family” was released in November 2018, which has gained over 3,000 views.

Tracks such as “Sophomore” feature atmospheric clean guitars, paired with ripping, fuzzy choruses that don’t hold back on the catchy melodies.

Vocalist Jamie Batten’s lyrics wrap the listener in dark cocoon of raw emotion and riveting story telling.

Tracks like “Exploit the Family” paint a tale of turbulent relationships against a cacophony of noise and whooshing guitars with an infectious back beat.

The band cites The Smashing Pumpkins, The War on Drugs, and Alex G. as the main influences on their sound in an interview with Dead Press.

The release of “Sophomore” came with a slot at the 2017 Reading & Leeds Festival.

The band also toured in support of American acts such as Moose Blood, Citizen, and The Dangerous Summer in the U.K. and Europe.

Honey Lung is currently preparing to travel to America in March for their debut LP Memory, which is due out Feb. 1 via Kanine Records. U.S. dates will include an appearance at the New Colossus Festival in New York City’s Lower East Side.

 If you can’t make it to their show, Honey Lung’s music is definitely worth checking out, which can be found on their YouTube channel, HoneyLungVEVO.
