It’s safe to say Honey Moon have been enjoying themselves lately, but things aren’t slowing either. You’d better be ready for the 2023 plans they have planned…
RECORD WEEKLY’S INTERVIEW WITH HONEY MOON
Hey guys, how’s it going?
Hey, good thank you!
Bring us up to speed with all the highlights lately…
This year’s been a fun one for sure. We’ve been releasing a whole load of new music, touring that and we also had a very special, sold-out show at The Lexington earlier on in the year, which was pretty crazy! The vinyls of our debut album arrived the other day, too — that’s gotta be another highlight.
So, where did it all begin for the band?
Zach and I [Jack] met at a party a few years ago and started making a bunch of music in our bedrooms together. We had some other friends help form the band just for fun mostly and then it unravelled from there. Joey joined later on after walking past a pub one night, hearing us playing from the street and, six months later, he was on bass.
What have been your most noteworthy achievements to date?
There have been a load of surreal moments. But probably some of our favourites have been playing Glastonbury Festival, having Elton John big us and our music up, hearing our songs on vinyl for the first time, and recording our debut album!
If you could get the seal of approval from three celebrities, who would they be?
Ned Schneebly, Steve Wiebe and Larry David.
2022 is drawing to a close — can you share any upcoming news in advance? And how’s 2023 shaping up so far?
Yes! Our debut album, ‘Same Old Paradise’, will be coming out on 31st January* and, around that time, we’ll also be on a UK tour as part of Independent Venue Week*. We’ll be doing an extra-special album release party at MOTH Club on 3rd February — can’t wait.
