It all started when...
Wild Honey first came to light with 'Eye to Eye', a jaunty tune that gave the thumbs down to a partner's scheming plans of new-age domesticity. Fast forward two years, and with the imminent arrival of debut album 'In Your Head', it seems like the band is coming of age, on its own terms.
Initial singles 'Break Away' and 'Messed Up' both let in light from different angles. Despite their jangly carefree surface and indie-pop finesse, both songs hold a deeper world-weary lyricism.
Singer/songwriter Thom Moore (Mercy Arms) says the album 'almost didn't happen', echoing an all too often heard tale of publishing and record deals working against each other.
“The songs on the record reflect the struggle it took to make. I wrote some whilst doing traffic control in the blue mountains, some while crashing out on a friends floor on the north coast, and some while emptying the contents of my grandmothers Sydney flat after she passed away. I guess its really the sound of growing up".
The album was recorded with producer Jack Moffitt (The Preatures) and mixed by Doug Boehm (Girls). It’s a distinctly different sounding album; a weaved collection of full band studio recordings, and more intimate home recordings.
Well and truly warmed up, Wild Honey hit the road in November for a run of six dates up and down the East Coast to officially launch In Your Head.
