Album Review

At first glance, Honeyblood seems tailor-made to embody as many indie rock trends from the late 2000s and early 2010s as possible: they're an all-female guitar and drums duo playing noisy pop heavily indebted to the '90s, right down to their compound word band name. Yet Honeyblood's moniker also reflects the fascinating duality of Stina Tweeddale and Shona McVicar's self-titled debut album, on which they deliver equal amounts of sugar and grit — as well as a surprising amount of nuance — with their guitars, vocals, and drums. Tweeddale's voice is so ringingly clear that it's a pleasure to hear, whether she's singing sullen surfer-girl pop à la Best Coast on "(I'd Rather Be) Anywhere But Here" or about bruises that look like roses on the closing track, "Braid Burn Valley." Sometimes they're more sophisticated, as on the delicate, almost jazzy drum work that graces "Fall Forever"'s breakdowns; sometimes they're more rambunctious, as on the snarling "Super Rat" or the irresistible "Fortune Cookie." However, the duo's most knowing songs may be the most winning. Honeyblood's debut single, "Bud," is still a standout, with Tweeddale giving Jenny Lewis a run for her money in the wryly gorgeous and heartbroken sweepstakes as she sings lyrics like "Tender bloom of doom/Like a nursemaid to a battle wound." "Choker" presents the duo's darker side, evoking University-era Throwing Muses with its stabbing riffs and deceptively catchy angst, while "No Spare Key" captures the vulnerability of being so in love that there are no other options. While there's a small but significant gap between Honeyblood's outstanding songs and the rest of the album, it's still a debut full of moments of depth and moments of instant gratification — as well as lots of potential.

Customer Reviews


I've been waiting for this ever since I first heard Bud (which seems so long ago now!) well done girls, loving it!

So cool and destined to be a classsic

Honeyblood are Stina Tweeddale and Shona McVicar a female duo from Glasgow

This band have come out of nowhere for me as someone who doesn't keep up with the latest music much. I only heard about them by chance and was blown away by the awesome single "Killer Bangs". It is a major punk anthem. And if you like that, you'll love this.

Apart from this standout track, here I can detect elements of 90's American college rock amongst the punchy punk beats and classy singer songwriter sensibilities. Talk about crunchy guitars!

They've put together an eclectic and diverse range of songs with one thing in common : all are awesome. We have the mesmerically smooth flowing "Biro" to the chirpy, countrified "Bud" and sweet, heady "Joey" all the way through to the in-your-face, almost bile-fuelled "All Dragged Up" and "Super Rat".

Ad I haven't even mentioned how good "Choker" and "Fall Forever" are! There are no fillers here. Just a gorgeously crafted range of songs with some very clever, thoughtful lyrics ("No Spare Key", "Biro" in particular) giving a hugely impressive debut album, and an album of the year no doubt. They may just be the saviours of what I call awesome music!

It's a brilliant record on many levels and highly recommended!


Amazing from start to finish!!!


Formed: 2012 in Glasgow, Scotland

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '10s

Glaswegian noise pop duo Honeyblood formed in early 2012, consisting of Stina Marie Claire Tweeddale on guitar and vocals and Shona McVicar on drums. The two took inspiration from dark and cloudy '90s indie rock luminaries like PJ Harvey, Sonic Youth, and Throwing Muses and filtered it into a gorgeously murky home-recorded sound of their own, quickly growing a local profile and eventually opening shows for the likes of Sleigh Bells, and even performing at bigger festivals. The group's grassroots...
