So I'm a little confused and very intrigued by the recipe for New Brunswick band Honeydrum's sound. Its a touch dark, a dash of tropical, a pinch of new wave, a smidgen of garage rock and a whole lot of lo-fi bedroom pop. A strange brew, but I must say the final product is a delicious treat for the ears.
The band debuted with a three track cassette released late last November, my favourite of which would probably be 'The Cuban'. They also have music vids for the other two tracks 'Romper Stomper', which appears to be a blurred out porn film, and an equally abstract 'Don't Worry About Boys'.
