Hailed by the likes of Sir Elton John and Clash, the South-London based trio have been making waves since their arrival onto the indie music scene in early 2015.
‘Stop and Listen’ sees the boys release their first new cut since 2019’s ‘Magic’ and follows on from the band racking up millions of streams over the lockdown period.
Oozing with rich positivity backed by a soul-infused soundscape, Chandler’s optimistic vocals shine through atop staccato guitar riffs. Rife with cathartic beats, the cut is a sure-fire indie anthem set to stun when played live.
Explaining the track in more detail, the band say, “It’s an upbeat stomper that tells the story of two people pulling in opposite directions throughout a fractious relationship. Born out of a period of negativity and frustration, writing and recording the song has been a cathartic process – one that has taken what was once a sensitive subject matter and bundled it into our own little sing-a-long anthem, all tied up with a soul-pop bow. On a thematic level, ‘Stop and Listen’ is for anyone who’s been through troubles and disagreements with friends, struggles with anxiety, control and inward reflection, but it’s also just for anyone who wants to dance!”
If ‘Stop And Listen’ is anything to go by, 2022 is going to be a big year for Honey Moon.
