Brighton band bring out sec­ond sin­gle

West Sussex County Times - - The Guide -

Brighton band Honey­bad­ger have re­leased their next sin­gle Top Of The List. The sin­gle is pro­duced by Paul ‘Win’ Win­stan­ley and is the band’s sec­ond re­lease. It cap­tures the en­ergy of their live per­for­mance. Phil Nye, co-man­ager, said: “Re­mark­ably, whilst the av­er­age age of the band is only 17, the band have been play­ing to­gether as a group for over four years and brothers Eddy (vo­cal and gui­tars) and Joe (drums) have been play­ing since they were eight. “Whilst be­ing so young brings some chal­lenges lim­it­ing the venues they and their fans can ac­cess (lead singer Eddy was ac­tu­ally late for a re­cent sound­check at Brighton’s

Ko­me­dia venue due to hav­ing de­ten­tion at school), it also brings an en­ergy and fresh­ness that makes them stand out and di­rectly con­nect with their au­di­ence. “Their last sin­gle re­lease was streamed all over Europe and has been played on a num­ber of in­ter­na­tional ra­dio sta­tions which has helped to es­tab­lish the band’s cre­den­tials, grow the fan­base and sig­nal what their lis­ten­ers can ex­pect in the fu­ture. “Whilst the band draw on many in­flu­ences in­clud­ing Queens Of The Stone Age, The White Stripes and raw Punk en­ergy (bass player Luca’s fa­ther is the bass player in the Va­pors of Turn­ing Ja­panese fame), their sound is very dis­tinct and di­rect.”
