Coventry-based four piece Honeytrap release their long-awaited debut album Follies in Great Cities on Monday 9th June through Tough Love Records. Complete with artwork by Rose Blake; daughter of the legendary Peter Blake, the ten track album represents a year of considered and unique song-writing, now married to ambitious production values. Following the release of the bands David Bowie endorsed Naked Dancing EP last year, Follies.sees the band embrace a wider palette of instrumentation, incorporating violin, mandolin and horn sections alongside the requisite guitar, bass, drums set-up. The rich textures on display belie the unconventional recording locations adopted by the band, taking place in an old coal vault and a band members bathroom. Among the epic statements are several pop nuggets, replete with infectious melodies and addictive hooks that demonstrate a pop sensibility in tandem with their artistic impulses. "Try keeping up with this one if you can, it gets faster and faster and faster until it collapses exhausted into a bar full of drunks" David Bowie on album track "Mussolini's Son" / "Sly-humoured, subtly dramatic oddballs... pretty fucking cool." Drowned In Sound / "'Filling the gaping chasm left after Les Incomptents split... Nifty tunes" VICE Magazine.
