[[Uncutz]]: March 2019
Electric Honey are releasing a new album on March 14th (Pi Day). It’s called Primetime Garbage and its been pressed to vinyl at Third Man Records within Detroit. The local quintet blend elaborate art-pop, post-prog, new-wave and space-rock with baroque elements like violin, trumpet, ukulele and a mandolin. Power chords riff with urgent punk aggression in to the nice, sinewy glide of a bow sawing over strings.
The vocals are emotive and contemplative, something like Costello-meets-Grohl, as the post-punk and aerodynamic riffs of something similar to the Pixies may attain headier style of the Radiohead-esque atmosphere. Actually, Electric Honey’s knack, overall, can be an atmosphere. It’s grunge for the theatre. I swept up with each known person in the music group to enquire about their development during the last five years.

This is a tight-knit ensemble of dudes who have each been around the band-block a few times already so they know how to serve a track and the way to provide each other’s advantages. What have been some of the most fulfilling or aspects up to now, as the band’s gradually made its way onto the picture? Patrick: The relationships I’ve constructed with fellow music artists and enthusiasts around Detroit are the most important aspect if you ask me.
Without visitors to play on a bill with, people coming to shows, or people writing about music, bands finish up staying in their comfort zone and develop to their full potential never. My partner Ann has always told me this and urged me to meet people and build relationships with other bands. You can’t just be an outsider looking in and expect to get shows or hook up with other bands. You have to be involved.
You have to tell your fans about other bands. You must go to shows where you are not playing. You can’t email it in. And to be honest, it’s a lot of work when you already have a full-time job and countless other things happening in your life, but it’s worth it! Evan: Having the opportunity to maintain the same room (occasionally) with such great musicians and friends, creating music that we really about care, has been fulfilling alone.
Couple that with the community facet of live music and the whole lot is awesome. Chris: Strangely enough I think getting the violin triggered a shift to a sound, with an increase of energy and angst than on Vanadium. I love that we can get a little crazier on stage now because of that added energy! What’s the key to the chemistry? John: When we got started, our shared collective music background and roots going back to childhood meant we were already speaking the same vocabulary without saying a phrase.
