London based shoegaze specialists Honey Lung released highly anticipated new EP ‘Post Modern Motorcade Music’ on 29th May via highly regarded independent cult indie label ‘Big Scary Mosters’ who represent the likes of American Football, Martha and Orchards.
The group originally met online via a Gumtree advert posted by frontman Jamie Batten calling for ‘like-minded individuals to help create sonic hell’ and have since established themselves as one to watch by attaining notable festival slots at the likes of Reading and Leeds, Latitude and The Great Escape.
The EP provides the perfect mix of laid back alternative indie vibes and neo-psychedelic rock with the addition of enticing grungy vocals, often complimented nicely by soft acoustic guitar. They aim to use their music to tell stories and express honest feelings placing them outside of conventional genre boundaries which has been achieved in their new EP as they perfectly blend the best aspects of many genres we know and love to create a unique, darkly futuristic sound.
Speaking about their journey towards the release, Batten explained:
“The EP is very close to our hearts, a lot has happened in the past six months and it quickly became something that we wanted to create with care and time, thinking through it bit by bit until it was finished. As a band things have changed, and as we get older we realise that our views and our experiences have influenced our music and impacted the stories we tell through these songs. I guess you could say ‘Post Modern Motorcade Music’ is somewhat of a coming-of-age EP, it really brings into focus the hardship you go through, and the responsibility of becoming an adult and the relationships with your friends and loved ones that go with that; the good, the bad and the ugly”.
