Scottish two-piece Honeyblood are streaming the single ‘Bud’ ahead of its official release on 4 November via FatCat Records. Sounding similar to their fellow Glaswegians Camera Obscura, ‘Bud’ is a jangly guitar pop song upheld by catchy vocal melodies and demands multiple plays due to the song’s tantalising brevity. On ‘Bud’, the band’s first vinyl release, their no-nonsense bittersweet pop has been captured to tape by Rory Atwell (Palma Violets, Veronica Falls). The rootsy, chanting glee of the A-side is backed with the urgent lo-fi punky charm of addictive B-side, ‘Kissing on You’.
