Melanie Fulker I can't remember how I cam across this album, a suggestion within a suggestion within a suggestion in my feed probably, but I haven't been able to stop listening to it since I bought it. The lyrics are cool and feminine and strong and intelligent and the vocals make it stupidly catchy. Favorite track: Justine, Misery Queen.

steveinsocal "...for a duo Stina Tweeddale and Cat Myers create a LOT of noise - a banshee wail of guitar and rib-crunching percussion - all the while successfully nailing any musical genre worth remembering. Throw-in bitter-sweet lyrics from a decidedly female perspective and it's not hard to be enrapture by the Sound of Young Scotland..."

Gordon Frisbie When it’s about this and it’s about that. It’s about standing up and doing it right. 100.00 percent right. This album and the previous one deliberately ensnare me. Good lessons. Scary lessons. My plan is to listen and to stay out of the way. Favorite track: Love Is A Disease.

about

Recorded during several candle-burning stints at London’s Fish Factory studios in the winter of 2016, Stina and Cat were joined by acclaimed producer James Dring, whose work with the likes of Jamie T and Gorillaz made him an intriguing choice for the Scottish duo. Make no mistake though, ‘Babes…’ doesn’t sound like anyone else but Honeyblood. The urgent lo-fi charm that defined their debut still pulses from its core. The band that burst forth from Glasgow’s DIY underground scene just a few years ago, recording cassette tape releases in their bathrooms and hosting ad-hoc parties in disused hairdressers is still in tact; however, the evolution that’s taken place is undeniable. An epically road-tested band and a dose of production finesse create a formidable combination.

Stina’s songwriting truly has found a bright new spotlight on her band’s second outing. ‘Babes’…’ is resplendent in the kind of effortless chant-a-long hooks that one by one will all soon become their own mantras. For a while now Honeyblood have been talked about as one of the most exciting new UK bands, but with ‘Babes’…’ you just get the feeling that before long they’ll be simply be known as one of the most important bands around, period.
