With an album full of scrumptious solos to wake you up from that sleepy slumber, earth-moving electric guitar riffs and haunting vocals that enter your ears like a welcoming light, this is is something so special. Australia has some quality bands at the moment but Melbourne’s Honeybone, make a well-deserved dent into the minds of the uninspired to wake up the senses. They rock in the dusty door of your local sweat-filled music venue, and smash its hinges off on the new album called ‘Spheres‘.
Her vocals grab you by the face and take you into the journey of this exciting band who have that extra cutting edge appeal. There is so much to like here and the passionate energy shines so bright in the often cliched genre, that seems to wash the same style together again and again. Not on this album however.
The burning energy glazes over all of these songs like tasty donuts that you have licked your lips over for weeks now, the hunger is there, and this is a classy outfit. There are no average songs here, no fillers and definitely no shockers that leave you passed out from too much electricity into your veins. Particular highlights must be ‘Artificial Tears‘, ‘Stratosphere‘ and ‘Bones‘, the band seem in extra top form here, and these songs remain lodged deep inside the soul.
This is a 3 Piece Rock act that are only flying up through the sky at a rate that Rick & Morty would be proud of. This is an excellent release that deserves lots of love and head banging aplenty awaits, when live gigs are on again and fans can see their new favorite Australian band.
Melbourne is known for incredible underground acts that so good live. You can see why with ‘Spheres‘ from the electrifying Honeybone. Remember the name.
