A delicious night awaits at the Cambridge Junction on Monday 28th with the excellent double bill of Honeyblood and PINS.
With a charming sweetness that scoops into a snarl at any moment, Glaswegian duo Honeyblood are back and driving up the volume. Their acclaimed self-titled debut saw countless applause, no doubt persuaded by the carefree, anthemic joy of hooks. It was a shock then, only two months after the album’s release when original drummer Shona McVicar upped and left the band. In response, vocalist and guitarist Stina Tweeddale drafted in new drummer Cat Myers and the new line up soldiered on. The sophomore ‘Babes Never Die’ is full of devilishly infectious yell-along choruses, call-and-response guitar lines and a heart-warming gang mentality. More so, it is a record of a band back from the brink and back on the assent.
Support comes from Manchester five-piece PINS, an outfit who make buoyant, melodic garage rock. Last year, PINS released second album Wild Nights via Bella Union to much acclaim. 2015 was also defined by a packed out touring schedule for the band supporting the likes of Sleater-Kinney, Drenge, Wire, Best Coast, Gang Of Four and Stealing Sheep.
