|Fiercely independent and at risk of blowing a fuse, Sydney’s Wild Honey come through today with new single ‘Break Away’, the first track off their upcoming debut full-length album.
Recorded with Jack Moffitt (The Preatures, Mosquito Coast) and mixed by Doug Boehm (Girls, Dune Rats), ‘Break Away’ serves as an anthemic call to arms for anyone who feels like they are going through the motions. Frontman and songwriter Thom Moore explains “After my Nan died, I just couldn’t seem to adjust. I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life working in a job that failed to satisfy me, and really only served to cover the rent. I want to believe there is more to life than that, and it’s up to us to go and make that happen”.
And things are definitely happening for the five piece. Emerging with their self-titled debut EP in 2016, Wild Honey’s first track ‘Eye To Eye’ scored solid rotation on triple j and the band hit the road nationally with supports for fellow indie darlings The Belligerents, Hinds and Twin Peaks. Rounding out the year with a performance at Lost Paradise, the band racked up a whopping sixty shows in twelve months.
Following it’s premiere on triple j’s Home & Hosed last night, Wild Honey launch the single at Sydney’s Landsdowne Hotel on Saturday July 29. The live appearance is Wild Honey‘s first headliner for 2017 and a chance for fans to hear a stack of unreleased material from the five piece. ‘Break Away ’is available now independently via iTunes/Spotify.
