Honeyglaze announce debut album and share new single ‘Shadows’

Honeyglaze have announced their self-titled debut album and shared a video for their new single, ‘Shadows’ – scroll down the page to watch it now.

The London band are signed to Speedy Wunderground, the label co-run by respected producer Dan Carey.

‘Shadows’ is accompanied by visuals that follow the band as they create shadows against a collapsible reflector, using hats, head coverings with bunny ears and more. “Mornings always feel like paradise,” Anouska Sokolow sings on the jangly indie song. “Cos shadows always haunt me late at night.”

The video for the track was directed by Sorry’s Asha Lorenz. In a press release, the band said: “For the ‘Shadows’ video, we wanted to be a bit more playful and match the jauntiness of the song. We got together with directors Asha Lorenz and Flo Webb and a load of random props, and improvised shadow play scenes together. We just wanted to go out and have fun. We had no idea it would end in death. It was never our intention to kill Yuri. It just all happened so fast.”

Singer and guitarist Anouska Sokolow added of the track itself: “‘Shadows’ was written during a time when I had just moved house. I had no curtains in my bedroom and the streetlights would cast shadows into my room. I began to associate shadows with the inability to sleep and the feeling of waiting for the relief that the morning brings.”

The band’s self-titled debut album will be released on April 29 and can be pre-ordered here. The tracklist for ‘Honeyglaze’ is as follows:

‘Creative Jealousy’
‘I Am Not Your Cushion’
‘Female Lead’
‘Half Past’
‘Deep Murky Water’
‘Young Looking’

Honeyglaze recently featured in the NME 100 list of essential emerging artists for 2022. “The latest Brixton Windmill-lurking band to be welcomed into the Speedy Wunderground family boast a sound as tender and sweet as their name implies,” NME wrote in the piece.

“Tumbling guitar arpeggios, laid-back rhythms and mercurial vocals are the order of the day on their forthcoming debut album – and they’re an even dreamier prospect live.”
