honeyhoney To Deliver New Album Next Week
Not country, not folk, not indie rock, their music is a hybrid that defies simple definition. Produced primarily by Raymond Richards (Local Natives), Billy Jack finds the musicians Suzanne Santo and Ben Jaffe threading sweet melodies from start to finish.
Their first single, "Turn That Finger Around," is a steady-grooving story detailing hard times with a memorable hook and some Southern twang. A slow burn seethes beneath the gospel-flavored tale of romantic doubt, "Don't Know How (Slow Mover)," while strings baste the mourning ballad "Angel of Death," and "Thin Line" explores dissatisfaction, good times and loss through the blues. From the dark smolder of "Glad I Done What I Did" and stark piano of "LA River," to the euphoric romp of "Let's Get Wrecked"—honeyhoney's music embraces the sound of what it means to be alive.
To support the release of Billy Jack, the pair is currently out on the road with their full band on a 41-date nationwide "Ten Buck Tour." The co-headlining trek with indie folk singer-songwriter Joshua James began on September 21 — with all tickets priced at $10 or less (service charge and walk-ups not included).
