Honey Lung was coined upon a hazy writing session at Jamie’s house as they were listening to Jesus & The Mary Chain ‘Just Like Honey’. You’ll hear a lot of 90’s grunge, shoegaze, and alternative rock influence (Radiohead, The Smashing Pumpkins and Dinosaur Jr ) in their sound as the band got into this style of music though hearing it in their parents cars. Like many young new bands, the 90’s spoke to them as it was a time they didn’t really remember, but felt a connection to.
With a do-it-yourself attitude Honey Lung do things on their own terms often creating to their own desires and interests. Drawing influence from Car Seat Headrest, Sparklehorse, Elliot Smith and The Brian Jonestown Massacre, the band used their charity shop guitars and a modest home recording set-up to create songs for their first ever vinyl release out on Kanine Records in early 2019.
