| Scottish indie-rock band Neon Waltz today release their new single ‘Thoughts / Dreams / Regrets’. They also today announce their second album, ‘Honey Now’, out 1st September via Fierce Panda. The band will also be touring the UK this coming autumn, with dates to be announced soon.
Returning with their first release in three years, the stirring track welcomes a new era for the band with a heavy impact. A track that details change and the vulnerability that accompanies it, it is the direct effect of the band’s reshaping and a reframing of the situation as the closing of one chapter and the beginning of another.
The band say of the track: “After the first album, the band changed from 6 members to 4 in a
really short space of time, it felt like it was falling apart. In a way it literally was. Some of the
lines are so directly about our band situation but almost all of them were written to be applied to any situation in life that can be made better by a simple reframing. This was the song that
probably made us realise we had what we needed to do some of this record on our own. The drums were recorded in a tiny store room in the middle of our hometown on a lunch break
from a day job”
Alongside the single, the band also today announce their second album ‘Honey Now’, which will be released on 1st September via Fierce Panda. The album shows the band shaking things up and moving on and figuring out different ways to bring the songs to life. Over the Covid lockdown, the band had time to reflect on the disillusions of the music industry they had formed. Through this period of silence, they were able to regroup and have their faith restored by a few kind people who helped put the album together on a shoestring budget. Through songs that talk about fears, loss and finding yourself, ‘Honey Now’ places the band exactly where they belong, with a refreshed outlook and a new sense of purpose.
