With anticipation mounting around the release of their new album Babes Never Die later this year, Honeyblood have unleashed one of the LP’s many stand-out tracks, the dangerously addictive “Sea Hearts”. Maintaining their flair for relentless hooks and infectious pop-punk energy it’s a track that is sure to become instant favourite amidst the Glasgow duo’s rapidly growing fanbase and turbo-charge their already heady ascendance.

For Honeyblood frontwoman Stina Tweeddale, the title of her band’s second album came from somewhere close to her heart, literally. “I have those words tattooed on my ribs.” she smiles. “I guess you could call it a war cry; to have the faith to never let yourself be defeated.” Babes Never Die is not a shy motto, and one that’s triumphant sentiment rings throughout Honeyblood’s exceptional sophomore record. “The title is my own mantra, Stina explains of the follow-up to their eponymous 2014 debut.

“I think it’s something I tell myself every day. Indifference is a plague. Giving up and turning a blind eye will be the end of us. Never before has that been more true than now. Perhaps we should stare straight into the face of what frightens us and say that we will never let them win. When I use the word ‘Babe’ I don’t see it as gendered. I just wanted to share the phrase and the power it gives me. Saying that, like most Honeyblood lyrics, it is vaguely facetious.”
