It’s the bane of many bands being told which combination of artists they sound like, but not so for Australian four-piece The Honey Pies –
‘Roy Orbison meets the Sex Pistols', it’s been said - a description as preposterous as it is astute. Combining the unassuming simplicity of post-war pop with the fuzzier, kookier sounds of the pre-apocalypse, The Honey Pies create music which is at once nostalgic and revelatory. Pre-post-rock, if you will. Three years now they’ve gigged locally and toured nationally, supporting the likes of Tim Rogers, The Jezabels, Leader Cheetah, John Steel Singers, Eagle & The Worm, Parades, The Gin Club, Seabellies, Belles Will Ring and Oh Mercy.

Their debut album ‘Think of England’ (2010) was warmly received in native Adelaide, and garnered airplay and acclaim countrywide. Releasing their second album only a year later, the band are hoping to cement their reputation as one of Australia’s most sleep-deprived bands. Recorded by Dave Crowe (Mammoth Logic), mixed by Jack Farley (Love of Diagrams) and mastered by Steve Rooke (The Beatles, Animal Collective, The Breeders) at Abbey Road Studios, the as-yet-untitled album extends beyond the simple ambitions of the first, presenting something altogether lusher, louder, braver and weirder.
