Nearing a decade of existence, Austin, Texas’s Honey And Salt have spent a lot of time refining their sound across countless releases, tours, and even lineup changes. For their upcoming self-titled record, the trio landed on a lineup that leveled the playing field and resulted in the band’s most potent sound. With all of the members settling naturally into their roles in the band, Honey and Salt is a record about trying to find optimism in the face of nearly constant bad news in the landscape of social politics. Lyricist Wade Allen (guitar/vocals) brings an interesting approach to songwriting for the band, with a unique background as a former philosophy teacher allowing him to write about the modern era from a point of view that one might not typically hear in rock music.
Today we are happy to be premiering “Simple Errors” the first single from Honey And Salt that truly showcases the band’s abilities to cut loose from the traditional structures of songwriting, making for an unconventionally arresting and seriously eye-popping (ear-popping?) listen. It’s a rare breed of song that manages to move through several time signatures, seemingly all at once. Check it out below.
