HONEY LUNG release new offering ‘Big’
‘Post Modern Motorcade Music’ EP out 29th May via BIG SCARY MONSTERS
London shoegaze specialists Honey Lung share tenacious new offering ‘Big’ (out 12th May), taken from the band’s forthcoming ‘Post Modern Motorcade Music’ EP, set to drop 29th May via Big Scary Monsters (American Football, Martha, Orchards).
Having initially met online via a Gumtree advert posted by enigmatic frontman Jamie Batten, calling for ‘like-minded individuals to help create sonic hell’, the alt-rockers have spent the last two years mastering the live circuit, combining JAWS and Basement tour supports with notable festival slots at the likes of SXSW, New Colossus, Reading & Leeds, Latitude and The Great Escape as their profile continues to soar.
Earning widespread acclaim from key industry gatekeepers (DIY, Clash, Gigwise, The Line Of Best Fit, Dork & Paste) and a seal of approval across the BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music airwaves (Jack Saunders, Huw Stephens, Steve Lamacq), the budding quartet aim to hit the road later this year to celebrate their new record.
Discussing their single release, Batten revealed: “’Big’ was a song I wrote last year when I was up at Edinburgh Fringe Festival. It was meant as an ode to the time I had there, which felt very isolated and gave me a lot of time to think about my choices and relationships I was facing back then. It’s quite a personal song as it was a confusing time and things weren’t straightforward. I’m usually quite unproductive when I’m going through a tough patch, and find it’s only in retrospect I can write a song about it. I think ‘Big’ is the most important song to me on the EP, it still affects me and is a comfort to me today”.
Honey Lung’s ‘Big’ is out 12th May via Big Scary Monsters and will be available on all digital platforms here.
