“Ethereal pop-punk. Brilliant.” – Alex Baker, Kerrang Radio
Despite less than two years in existence, Welsh wunderkinds Honeytalks have already landed acclaim from some of the scene’s biggest tastemakers, including BBC Introducing, Kerrang Radio and Bowling for Soup front man Jaret Reddick.
The high energy guitars and throwback emo vibes are just two of the reasons, as they intertwine deftly with whip-smart lyricism and a sharp delivery. Lauren James’ drums add a raw, punk rock rhythm, powering a sound that is equal parts urgent and melodic.
“Takes me right back to the 90s, what a band.” – Adam Walton, BBC Introducing
With the release of debut EP Over It last year, Honeytalks delivered a highly-promising rookie collection that would set the band in motion for a string of UK tour dates.
Not satisfied with the growing list of genre heavyweights already cooing over their sound, Honeytalks landed Steel City Studios in Sheffield (All Time Low, You Me At Six, Bring Me The Horizon), for production duty on their highly anticipated new music.
New album There’s Hope in Hopeless embodies struggle, positivity and triumph for those who feel marginalized and misunderstood. Mental health is at the thematic core of the new collection, but the overarching message is one of strength and hope, inspired by Honeytalks’ uplifting brand of melodic punk.
There’s Hope in Hopeless is out now, on Affiant Records.
