Hailing from sunny East Kilbride where there are more roundabouts than human beings, Honeyvale are pleased to release their new single Mercurial.
A raucous 2 minutes 50 seconds of classic indie-pop; Mercurial is a tale of love, dancefloors and stolen lighters, told in the dappled light of an early Sunday morning, when optimism prevails and the hangover hasn’t yet kicked in. The lads spoke with The Fountain about the new single and their plans forthcoming.
TF: A new single, how exciting, what has the reception been like so far?
Locally it’s been received quite well. We’ve had a few good write ups in a bunch of articles online. It’s all gone to our head a little bit to be honest. Connor fancies himself as a designer rockstar now and has started drinking decaf coffee.
TF: With a title like Mercurial, it sounds more celestial, perhaps what we need right now?
Truth be told we had to look up the word celestial. We’re no experts on astronomy but we’re flattered you think it’s out of this world.
TF: And is this the first from an EP or an album that we can see the release of later in 2019?
This is the leading song off our debut EP Polo Mint City which will be released early next year.
TF: Will you be promoting the EP with a tour at all, will we have the pleasure of seeing you live?
We’re in the process of getting knocked back for a number of support tours at the moment but hopefully you’ll get the chance to see us headline our own show early next year.
TF: How did you all meet and form Honeyvale?
We all grew up in East Kilbride aka Polo Mint City and have been playing music together since we were kids. We played in a bunch of different bands but they weren’t up to much. We’re still trying to figure out if this is but I guess we’ve always got astronomy to fall back on.
