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 two-song demo cassette quickly caught the attention of FatCat Records, which signed Honeyblood in 2013 and issued their first single, Bud, later that year.
The duo’s self-titled album, which was produced by Peter Katis, arrived in July 2014 and delivered a more polished version of Tweeddale and McVicar’s crunch-pop. Shortly after Honeyblood’s release, McVicar left and was replaced by Cat Myers.
Honeyblood is available for corporate events, private shows, milestone celebrations (birthday, anniversary), fundraisers, festivals, and more.
