Austin’s Honeyrude will release their full-length debut album, The Color Blue, on August 18th via Shifting Sounds Records (Magnet School, Black Books, Gentlemen Rogues). The shoegaze revivalists have created a stunning record of textural dream-pop and early 90’s fuzzed out bliss, with an incredible attention to sonic detail.
Today, the band has shared the album opener, “Something About Milwaukee.”
Guitarist/vocalist Jess Ledbetter explained the song’s origins and meaning to SPIN:
“‘Milwaukee’ is about being stuck. The lyrics function in an abstract way for me but it is essentially about needing a new perspective or a big push. It’s our newest tune and we wanted it to be really shimmery and pretty. I’m enjoying working on songs where I sing a little softer. It’s easy to get on stage and shout your face off because you’re excited but songs like this one challenge me to find another part of myself to sing from.”
08/25 – Bryan, TX @ Revolution Cafe & Bar
09/15 – Austin, TX @ Hole in the Wall w/ Magnet School (LP release party)
