Forever Honey is Liv Price (lead vocals, guitar), Aida Mekonnen (lead guitar, vocals), Steve Vannelli (drums), and Jack McLoughlin (bass). After collaborating in a range of projects that shared stages with Editors, Middle Kids, and Johnny Marr, the four decided to collaborate, making something of their own. The band talk Christian, EPs, Covid 19 with The Fountain, with the release of their new single and EP.
TF: You have a new single out, what reception have you had thus far?
Honestly, we’ve been really pleased that people have taken the time to listen. We chose Christian as our first single because it’s a sort of snapshot of where we are in our lives, and what we really enjoy listening to. It got picked up by Spotify for their Fresh Finds: Indie playlist, and that’s been a massive help in reaching people.
TF: How would you sum it up in one sentence?
We’ve hinted at it before, but it’s a glimpse into the frivolous lives of 20-something year olds that move to a new city; romantic guitar-pop for the age we’re living in.
TF: Who do you look to and idolise when it comes to influences?
We look up to bands like The Stone Roses, The Sundays, and really anything Johnny Marr has been involved with; but there are also contemporary bands like Sunflower Bean and Soccer Mommy that have absolutely blown our minds.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, an EP release, an LP?
Well covid-19 really threw us for a spin we’ve got a video that we’re also really excited about coming out with our second single that stars Olivia’s mum. Besides that, we’re already working on demos for a full length record, and we’re hoping we can start playing shows again in the summer and fall.
