Forever Honey is the new NYC-based project of Liv Price (vocals, guitar), Aida Mekonnen (guitar, vocals), Steve Vannelli (drums), and Jack McLoughlin (bass.)
Finding common ground over a love of jangly, guitar-driven pop of the late 80s and harmony-saturated rock of the 60s, the four draw lyrical inspiration from personal experiences and self-reflection. Forever Honey’s debut EP Pre-Mortem High is slated for an April 24, 2020 release. Today, the band has released their first single off the EP “Christian” along with video accompanying it.
Pre-Mortem High is the band’s personal coming of age story put to music – the sound of girls and boys telling their girls and boys when enough is enough; the moment when sweet nothings whispered in the wee hours become spotlighted by sunlight, revealing holes of truth and promise.
Written on the heels of the band’s relocation to Brooklyn, this record covers the anxiety of getting older, the thrill and danger of frivolous summer nights, and the pursuit of honesty. Channeling the clever, no-nonsense spirit of 90’s brit pop and the jangly guitars of 80’s new wave, Pre-Mortem High is their attempt at capturing the intensity of personal relationships and life in a new city, all within the confines of four songs.
Here’s the band on Christian:” The song was actually the last to be written for our upcoming EP and came together really quickly…sort of like it’s always been there. We were looking for something upbeat, and this was the result right before we went in to record. Writing it also may have subconsciously brought up some things about ourselves and the nature of our relationships at the time.“
