With their sophomore studio album Babes Never Die slated for a US release via FatCat Records later this month on October 28th (November 4th in the UK and beyond), the dynamic Scottish duo Honeyblood—comprised of Stina Tweeddale and Cat Myers—have unleashed the title track, another invigorating sampling of their signature melodic rock-pop confections. Together with the recently unveiled singles “Ready For The Magic” and “Sea Hearts,” “Babes Never Die” suggests wonderful sounds to come on the band’s full-length effort.
“I have [“Babes Never Die”] tattooed on my ribs,” Tweeddale explains in an official band statement. “I guess you could call it a war cry; to have the faith to never let yourself be defeated. The title is my own mantra. There’s a strong narrative theme that runs throughout the record, a sort of chaotic empowerment. I wrote songs with real characters, more like stories. There’s a dark undertone throughout. I wanted gruesome romance stories rather than whiney love songs.”
