Following the release of their anti-Trump single ‘Stop Him’, Honey Hahs today release ‘River’, the second single from their forthcoming debut album Dear Someone, Happy Something, out Friday 7th September. Watch video below!
Robin of Honey Hahs explains the inspiration behind the song: “River is about a sad film we watched that really touched us called ‘Bridge to Terabithia’. Rowan found it hard to accept that the girl character in the film had died and writing the song made her feel better about it somehow. When we recorded it, Steve (Mackey – Producer) wanted lots of percussion so Sylvie got to use a huge drum and I played a glockenspiel. Really fun!!”
Honey Hahs are three sisters from Honor Oak Park in South London, aged 16, 13 and 11. Rowan plays guitar and piano, Robin plays bass and Sylvie plays drums, and they all sing and harmonise. Their songs convey a disarmingly frank, refreshingly clear, child’s-eye view of the world.
Produced by Pulp’s Steve Mackey, the album demonstrates their wildly creative approach to making music and includes influences as diverse as Michael Jackson and The Children Of Sunshine. Dear Someone, Happy Something is available to pre-order here.
