Rated 5 out of 5 by Gary the Bee from Rocking I bought honeybloods a first album and loved it. So when I saw they were playing at the Lunction in Cambridge I jumped at the chance. The set consisted of all of the new album and the classics from their first. For just the 2 of them, boy can they fill a venue with sound. Loved it and look forward to seeing them again

Rated 5 out of 5 by thirstiekirstie from Both girls have so much talent. It was a brilliant night! My friend introduced me to honeyblood's awesome music a couple of weeks ago when he told me they were playing. I loved their music immediately but I now love them even more, having seen their wicked performance. They were very chatty and funny and signed my vinyl at the end. I love how they stayed behind to help with the merchandise :-) Very lovely and down to earth girls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mcc from Honeyblood's Birthday Party! This gig was an amazing night with a mixture of old songs woven into their new album - they played the whole album for us!!!!! It was also Stina's (lead singer/guitarist) birthday so there was a party atmosphere from the very start with breaks in between songs so she could open presents! I honestly couldn't of asked for the night to go better.... but it did!! Afterwards the girls from the band stuck around to talk to us and sign anything we placed in front of them - in our case: a vinyl record and a poster; but other people were more creative with their requests! Honeyblood played a spectacular gig and were really fun, genuine, warm people. I can't wait to see them again! :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigRedMarc from Great Music, Great Banter! Bought tickets on the strength of the latest single alone - worth every penny. The show was really tight musically and there was a lot good fun interaction with the band. Basically they played the entire Babes Never Die album and some others from the first. The Fleece in Bristol is a perfect venue for bands like this and it was 'Rammed' on the night! Excellent - catch them live if you get a chance!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jammyman from Honeyblood @ Electric Circus Glasgow duo, Honeyblood brought their distinct brand of low-fi noise pop to Edinburgh this October in what was the final gig of their pre-semaphore release tour. No strangers to the more intimate venues such as Electric Circus, one feels as though this is a band destined for larger stages. The racket they make is barely contained in the packed out bar. Honeyblood’s set just managed to stretch an hour, with the band debuting many as yet unheard songs from the upcoming record. Frontwoman, Stella Tweeddale’s candid interlocution between bandmate Cat Myers on drums, their bass synthesiser Sebastian (serving as a comic third member and articulating himself via a series of chirps and bleeps), and the audience, smoothed song transitions and contributed to an inclusive friendly atmosphere. The strength of Honeyblood’s fantastic self-titled debut was evident with the crowd really relishing such hits as ‘Super Rat’ and ‘Killer Bangs’. This however, did not seem the true objective of the night, which was to premiere the new material. Honeyblood have certainly evolved, adding extra beef by incorporating a bass synth into the mix, guitar with a harder edge than their previously, at times, dreamy soundscape, and adding drum samples. This is a step away from the DIY, low-fi feel of their earlier work, which seems like an inevitable progression as they acquire more acclaim. The catchy choruses and sharp lyrics of their first album are still abundant only now backed up by a more developed sound. Honeyblood capture that pure punk spirit. By that I do not mean the aggression and revolt of the 70s, but the attitude that anyone can make music, and that it does not have to conform to the guitar/bass/drums model. What the duo have is a band stripped down to its raw elements. Granted, in such a set up one needs to have a real talent for writing to allow the songs to carry, and this is a test Honeyblood most certainly pass. Coming away from a gig such as this elicits a reaffirming feeling that at heart, all you really need is guitar and drums.
