Say hello to a new track from Glasgow duo Honeyblood, a song about goodbyes. Not the sad, sorry, tearful kind of so-longs, but the ones you relish and bask in as you bid farewell, having finally mustered the courage to leave behind a “city that’s killing” you, where “the smog gets under your skin” and the people are poisonous. ‘(I’d Rather Be) Anywhere But Here’, taken from their self-titled debut album, due out next Monday (July 14), is a more slow-burning, sneering affair than what we’ve previously heard from the pair, trading the frantic pop-punk guitar of ‘Killer Bangs’ and cheery hooks of ‘Bud’ for an angry smoulder. Give it a go below:
Honeyblood play Glasgow and London next week, before departing on a US tour. Their (excellent) debut album is out via Brighton’s Fat Cat Records on July 14.
