Wildhoney aim to write pop songs with the energy and malcontent of hardcore punk, but without its entrenched masculinity. The five-piece has become one of the loudest - and sweetest - bands in their hometown of Baltimore, MD. Drawing influences from '60s girl groups, '80s post punk, indie pop and shoegaze, the group's blasts of distortion and use of dense textures are balanced with beautiful pop tunes and chiming guitar work. For fans of Cocteau Twins, Deerhunter and Stereolab. Vinyl version includes digital download.
