Single Review - Honeyblood - Bud
Given the exposure and success they've experienced so far, having supported the likes of Palma Violets and Sleigh Bells, it's almost impossible to believe that Bud is the début single from this young Glasgow female guitar/drums duo who formed only last year.
I say 'almost' because upon hearing the single, all becomes clear. Coated in some light dreamy reverb, Bud captures the essence of everything great about the band, from Stina Tweeddale's sweet yet assertive vocals and soft yet striking fretwork. Meanwhile drummer Shona McVicar creates a great contrast between verse and chorus, using her whole kit to keep the song interesting. The end result is one great piece of dreamy pop and hopefully the first of many more to come...
