The Swedish indie-gaze duo Honeymilk are set to release an EP in the second half of the year.
First introduced back in 2014 as a quartet, it is due to hiatus in line-up, internal soul-searching; rather than my fault that it has taken a couple of years to get back to them. There has been a fallow period whilst the two remaining members Markus and Nikki decided quite what to do with the project – with some fortune they have decided to continue with the roots remaining intact, though grafted on to the stock in a slightly different sound.
The new Honeymilk give themselves even more expansive elongation of bars, as evidenced, in the first track to surface from the forthcoming release, Time Will Kill You. Leaving the audience, in the resulting out-put, the sense they are rising away from the gravitational pull of the atmosphere of the earth.

Honeymilk from Stockholm in Sweden is the psychedelic-rock quartet of Albin Wesley (Bass), Erik Fritz (Drums), Nikki Nyberg (Guitar) and Marcus Admund (Vocals).
The sounds of Honeymilk glide across the room in a smoothly flowing wave as the guitar paints colourful rainbows for the ears to enjoy, without becoming overly flowery the music is able to relax the mind with the wafting textures. A firmly anchored bass / percussion gives the out-put a rolling direction of travel, whilst the vocal calmly brings the elements together as though folding a mousse together.
With a few years behind them Honeymilk have had various hiccups over their existence, which is itself formed from the ashes of another band – Urmas Plant and it wasn’t really until last year they got into gear and although an LP – Lean On The Sun appeared a further line-up change left them with another years delay in their follow-up – the EP – Sanguine Skies, which is set for release imminently.
Despite the trails and tribulations Honeymilk has managed to keep a steady flow of singles, the latest of which is A Scene In Between and tours and their most recent which starts next week is a short trip to England .
I hope Honeymilk find a period of stability as the music that does manage to filter through is smartly composed and well worth taking time to hear.
