The Bath-based Novatines are all set to release their upcoming single Honey on September 30th via SaySomething Records. Produced by both the band themselves and Andy Scott (Sweet) at Real World Studios, Honey is about ” seeing through fads, trends and short lived ‘next big things’ with no real substance. The band spoke with The Fountain about the track in more depth as well as their revised plan for 2020.

TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Honey?

It’s been great, I mean we feel stoked that we are getting some fresh music out there after such a big stretch of hibernation! For it to have been so well received is super humbling, it just makes us feel all warm and fuzzy.

TF: How would you sum it up in one sentence? 

Honey is the musical equivalent of breaking the seal on a night out – Heavy, satisfying & plenty more from where it came from…

TF: Who do you look to and idolise when it comes to influences with this track?

Phil Mitchell in a china shop. That pure aggression that radiates from Phil has helped us along our musical path. It’s because he really misses Grant. In musical terms there’s always a bit of a Black Sabbath, Foo Fighters kinda spirit to it. So yeah, imagine Phil smashing up priceless pieces whilst listening to us, Sabbath & the Foos – pretty perfect right?

TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this single release?

Well after such a long period of being able to be as creative as possible I’m sure there’s enough time to maybe squeeze out another track before the end of the year. Or maybe not – we’ll have to check our naughty & nice list.
