Protean musical nectar to savour.

It's hard to believe Dan Carey's new Wunder-kids on the block only got together before the first lockdown, so adept is the formation of their early songs. After rapidly developing a loyal fanbase (including steadfast chums Wet Leg) with debut single Burglar last year, London three-piece Honeyglaze have graced many a one-to-watch list and anticipation for a full album is fierce. Enter then their self-titled debut, 'a self-described “opposite to a concept album” that sonically encapsulates the who, what, where and how of their individual circumstances coming together as one.'

Honeyglaze and Wet Leg by Cal Moores.

The trio could not have chosen a more evocative name in Honeyglaze, so synonymous is the sugary substance with sweetness and beauty. Tender but always assured, this is a band that present honest and assorted storytelling, delivered with the kind of dynamism that draws you close and doesn't let go. Believe us when we say, we're hanging onto every note with this one.

For fans of: Belle and Sebastian, Phoebe Bridgers, Big Thief, Life Without Buildings, Tortoise.
