Cape Town, South Africa’s HONEYMOAN started in 2017 as a ‘just for fun’ jam session with various members of local alternative/indie/psych rock bands. What was originally conceived of as a dream pop project, swiftly turned into something a little more interesting and slightly more ambitious. The group developed a highly accessible sound with a wide span of influences such as Drake, Alvvays, Red Hot Chili Peppers, St Vincent and Tame Impala.
HONEYMOAN’s vision is to write modern, original alternative pop that is fun, fresh, and exciting; exploring common trials of youth/early adulthood, love, lust and pursuing one’s creative passions at all cost, despite the realities of living under Capitalism.
Stylistically the music ranges from funky bass driven tracks to alt-pop anthems with nods to shoegaze, psych rock and RnB.
Following the initial release of </3 / We in May 2018 the band went through some lineup changes, most notably the addition of producer / bassist Josh Berry. The current lineup consists of singer, Alison Rachel, guitarist Skye MacInnes, bassist Josh Berry and drummer Kenan Tatt.
The highly anticipated EP, Body, will be released on the 28th of June 2019. Featuring singles “Low Blow” and “Sweating Gold”, continuing the group’s trend of releasing vastly different but captivating tracks that showcase vocalist Alison Rachel’s penchant for strong pop hooks over the band’s psychedelic styling’s.
