- Stereo Honey Premieres New Song “Don't Speak” on BBC Radio 1
- London-based alternative pop band Stereo Honey's new song “Don’t Speak” was premiered exclusively on Billboard. Also, the song received its first play during BBC Radio 1 Huw Stephens.
The track is their third single of this year, following "What Makes a Man" and "You're the One".
Stereo Honey consists of Pete Restrick (Vocals / Guitars), Nicky Boiardi (Guitars / Keys), Jake Black (Drums) and Ben Edwards (Bass).
Last December, the band released a debut EP "Monuments". Their music reminds us of Tears for Fears.
Pete Restrick told Villboard about the song;
“’Don’t Speak’ is us embracing a more direct way of writing songs. We are very much enjoying writing singles at the moment as there is no holding back. The need to be delivering brutally immediate music that hooks people on the first listen is very exhilarating.
’Don’t Speak’ is a song written from depression’s point of view. A man lies alone, locked in some kind of terrible limbo, neither able to dream, nor able to wake up, neither able to live, but unable to die. His body carries its own twisted life force, like a heartbeat that continues on despite the body having already depreciated.”
“From the outside his body is still, but a battle rages inside of him. It comes in waves, crushing and obliterating everything in sight. And every time it leaves it takes a little piece of him with it. He cannot remember when he opened the doorway and let it in, but now that the door is unlocked he cannot close it again no matter how hard he braces the edges. Through this doorway a spark has ignited and has started a fire, that burns but never leaves.”
Stereo Honey will perform live at several festivals such as Barn on the Farm 2018 on July 7th, Truck Festival 2018 on July 20th, Tramlines 2018 on July 21st, Wilderness Festival 2018 on August 5th and Boardmasters Festival 2018 on August 12th.
