Newly-signed to the cult indie label, the group have already provided a stark indication of their glowing potential with recent singles ‘Be My Friend’‘Juggle’ and ‘Big’, introducing their newly-refined melodic sound whilst drawing inspiration from acts including Car Seat HeadrestSparklehouseElliot Smith and The Brian Jonestown Massacre.
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 SXSWNew ColossusReading & LeedsLatitude 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.
Speaking of its release, Batten explained: “The EP is very close to our hearts, a lot has happened in the past six months and it quickly became something that we wanted to create with care and time, thinking through it bit by bit until it was finished. As a band things have changed, and as we get older we realise that our views and our experiences have influenced our music and impacted the stories we tell through these songs. I guess you could say ‘Post Modern Motorcade Music’ is somewhat of a coming-of-age EP, it really brings into focus the hardship you go through, and the responsibility of becoming an adult and the relationships with your friends and loved ones that go with that; the good, the bad and the ugly”.

Post Modern Motorcade Music comes at the right time for all. It’s a momentous and a defining release from this promising collective. The band have sculpted a record bursting with virtuous and exhilarating instrumentation. Honey Lung have effortlessly created well rounded deliciously diverse, dreamy music, resonating in honesty and emotive essences. With bold, brash vocals hooking you instantly. This record is so needed for 2020.
