Easy Honey was born out of the small-town innocent college days: the days of walking home under the starry night, and springing under the watchful eye of sunny graveyards, Dairy Queens, and neo-gothic cathedrals. Easy Honey’s witty melodies dotted with catchy hooks serve as anthems of nostalgia for their indie rock audience of daydreamers and nightseekers. Drawing inspiration from the originality and attitude of The Kinks, The Replacements, and Radiohead, the band’s raucous yet sentimental live show exemplifies the realness that people crave in a post covid/internet driven world.
The band’s latest EP, Ooooo, landed itself on numerous popular playlists, including Spotify’s “Undercurrents,” “Grade A, “Surf Rock Sunshine,” as well as multiple Apple Music Playlists (Ski, New in Rock). The EP precedes more releases from the band under the direction of producer Wolfgang Zimmerman (Band of Horses, Susto).
