NEW SONG: Honeypot, "Matt's Dad"
Hailing from San Diego, CA, self-described "quirk pop" band Honeypot may have only formed late last year, but there's absolutely no trace of inexperience in their first single, "Matt's Dad."
Beginning with a bright and bubbly synth-line reminiscent of the indie-electronica innocence of the late naughts, "Matt's Dad" opens with a gentleness accentuated by frontwoman Jessica Severns hushed vocals, all before bursting into an infectious pop punk bridge. With oddly sweet lyrics relishing in the bitterness of love lost over power chords, the track provides the kind of rush you can imagine a crowd of kids going crazy for. "Over, under steep hills, you always go for cheap kills," sings Severns, "I always go for the heart, bleed out to find a new start."
It's an incredibly strong first single, and with only a handful of shows under their belt, it's exciting to see where they'll go from here. You can purchase the single now via Bandcamp and catch Honeypot at their upcoming show at Soma with With Age on March 2nd.
