Praise for Pale Honey
“a White Stripesian voice-drums-guitar sparseness… brilliant” – SundayTimes, ‘Breaking Act’
“a nervy bolt of Rock & Roll.” – Stereogum
“packed with refined, and barely controlled, fury.” – The Line of Best Fit
“The LP effortlessly tosses out just the right amount of sonic twists and turns” –Consequence of Sound
“…resembling the kind of Brit-grunge that saw PJ Harvey change the mid-90s musical landscape.” – NME
“Pale Honey remain coolly poised throughout the three-minutes of their latest single, in which fans of PJ Harvey and Sleater-Kinney will find a lot to love.” –Q
“Sparse yet emphatic, there are shades of early PJ Harvey or Sleater-Kinney in the directness of the songwriting. Capable of shifting intensity within a few seconds, Pale Honey have a remarkable sense of control for such a fresh group.” – Clash
“Gothenburg girls Pale Honey are here to make you head-bang.” –Wonderland
Gothenburg band Pale Honey emerge again from their studio this October to release a brand new single Real Thing, the first new material to be taken from the follow-up to 2015’s acclaimed self-titled debut. Praised for their sparse, direct and distortion-heavy rock, Real Thing sees the band continue to plough these furrows, but also experiment more with percussion and electronics, while lead singer Tuva Lodmark laces a commanding and intense vocal into the mix.
“Real Thing is what happened when we blew our minds. It’s all about knowing what you want and that you’re going to get it. For us, it’s courage and confidence packed and pressed into one song. We finished it up in the studio during the Swedish summer with clear visions what it was going to end up in – The Real Thing.” – Pale Honey
