Review: Honeyblood – Babes Never Die.

Image result for babes never die honeybloodBabes Never Die is the new album from Honeyblood who follow up from their awesome self titled debut. The duo who have done incredible things, including being support for the Foo Fighters, released their album on Friday and you can listen to now through the medium of Spotify. You can also see the first video from Babes Never Die here.

Honeyblood really do refine and sharpen their sound on this record partnered with a far more edgy rock vibe to the album than their previous. Tracks such as Ready For The Magic are evidence of this, as they bring an alt rock energy on the track that really works for them with a huge hook, something that hasn’t changed for this duo, this band perfecting this on their self titled.

This band really create some great riffs that give these tracks so much power throughout this record, tracks such as Walking At Midnight and Justine, Misery Queen really have some rough-edged riffs that work with the synth melodies this band use as a foundation for the album. The drums add a solid beat in the background. Honeyblood, continue their fantastic form on this album, this is a record I want to hear live in the future, as it really does suit a live crowd.

Honeyblood make excellent albums and Babes Never Die is no exception, hooks and alt rock melodies work brilliantly together, however this band slow the pace just as well on this record, songs such as Cruel where are certainly songs where you can find that. There are so many highlights on this album as Honeyblood do what they do best, however songs that stick out for me are Ready For The Magic, Gangs and Walking At Midnight.

9/10.
