DEBUT ALBUM ‘YOUTH’ SET FOR RELEASE ON 4TH MAY THROUGH BOLERO RECORDS
“Their dreamy garage-pop was very good indeed and they definitely have a bright future ahead of them, especially if they continue to write songs as good as ‘Fish’. – The Line of Best Fit
“Sparse yet emphatic, there are shades of early PJ Harvey or Sleater-Kinney in the directness of the songwriting. Capable of shifting intensity within a few seconds, Pale Honey have a remarkable sense of control for such a fresh group.” – Clash

 

PALE HONEY is a minimalistic rock duo from Gothenburg, Sweden. Already likened to artists likes PJ Harvey, Land of Talk and Sleater-Kinney, and calling to mind the sonic textures of Alvvays and Beach House, their debut single proper ‘Youth’ has just landed. Bathed in a tone that conveys nonchalance and sincerity in equal measure, the track premiered at Stereogum this week, who said;
“Youth comes in like a slow-moving storm; first, it’s just a drizzle, a solitary little synth line, then drums and Tuva’s low, slow vocals. But when her guitar explodes into the frenzied, nervy bolt of the chorus, she keeps her voice subdued, creating this sense of tension and control that adds an intimate, feminine layer to the song.”

Hear the single here, released March 2nd here:

“Youth is a nervy bolt of Rock & Roll.” – Stereogum

Tuva Lodmark (guitar / vocals) and Nelly Daltrey (drums) said the following of the track: “Youth started to take shape one summer that we spent locked up, sweating in our new rehearsal room. The playful guitar riff set the pace for the drums and the vibe was clear to us – the laid back sound gave the feeling of controlled coolness, which we later wanted to match the lyrics with. We recorded the song in Paris with our producer Anders Lagerfors and from there the song grew into the more wild, attitude-filled song, still keeping the simple playfulness. Being inspired by our ultimate decision – to start daring to make our own music and just go for it no matter what (probably paired with the usual personal awakening that every Swedish summer brings after the cold, dark winter) the lyrics are about letting go, getting over things and just keep going with your head held up high and starting to earn your bruises.”

Youth is taken from the self-titled debut album, out May 4th on Bolero Records.
