Sydney’s Wild Honey today announce the release of their debut album In Your Head – out Friday November 3 – plus a six date album tour – the last chance to see the band live for 2017.
Released on the band’s own label SPILLWAY Records, In Your Head is a nod to growing up and getting it done. The album’s twelve songs are an ode to coming of age; the days when the beach is your escape from the sound of your parents fighting, the nights you finally get the confidence to talk to the crush from your uni lecture at house party. In Your Head covers it all; overcoming hang ups and hang overs at the same time.
Opening with a strong statement of intent, single ‘Break Away’ makes it clear from the first strum that Wild Honey are determined to forge their own path. What follows is a journey through self-realisation (‘Messed Up’), loss (‘Guardian’), motivation (‘Pull It Together’), reflection (‘Supermarket’) and the life that happens in between. With nods to a range of diverse influences including Crowded House, The Go Betweens and The Cars, the record showcases the band’s impeccable vocal harmonies and jangly guitar addiction throughout.
The album was recorded with producer Jack Moffitt (The Preatures, Mosquito Coast) and mixed by Doug Boehm (Girls, Dune Rats). It’s a diverse sounding album; a lovingly weaved collection of full band studio recordings, and more intimate home recordings by singer/songwriter Thom Moore (Mercy Arms). The Sydney fourpiece recently showcased singles ‘Messed Up’ and ‘Break Away’ during a tri-state tour – which included two packed out BIGSOUND showcases. Well and truly warmed up, Wild Honey hit the road again in November for a run of six dates up and down the East Coast to officially launch In Your Head.

PRAISE FOR WILD HONEY
“Wild Honey’s sound is built on laidback pop charm with subtle Sixties psychedelia”
Rolling Stone Australia
“Listening to ‘Break Away’ makes Wild Honey’s mission clear: They won’t take no for an answer. Filled with sunny riffs and a wildly infectious hook, it’s a single that’s brimming with auspicious energy and a promising sign for the band’s full-length.”
Life Without Andy
‘A charming band, spurting out completely joyful rock n’ roll tunes’
‘The band is packed with both talent and experience.’
