Praised for their "catchy dream pop and jangly 80s new wave anthems" (Post-Trash), Brooklyn’s Forever Honey is carving out their own corner of the indie rock scene.
Composed of longtime friends Liv Price, Aida Mekonnen, and Steve Vannelli, and shortertime friend Jack McLoughlin, the band made their initial debut with “Pre-Mortem High,” in spring of 2020. The EP was met with excitement by tastemakers, like NPR’s Lars Gotrich; American Songwriter; The Wild Honey Pie; and Atwood Magazine, who enthusiastically declared the group as one to watch, “[proving] themselves to be far more than your average alternative band.” The most important rallying, though, came from independent playlisters, whose voiced support of and connections to the coming-of-age lyrics of co-songwriters Mekonnen and Price landed the EP at over 830K streams across platforms.
The year+ that followed was one of hunkering down with the rest of the world–writing about a whole lot of nothing, worrying about a whole lot of everything, filming Trailer Park Boys-esque skits, and fostering dogs.
Forever Honey returned to the live show circuit in fall 2021 with two fiery singles “Satellite” and “Number One Fan,” out under Better Company Records and recommended by Under the Radar and Earmilk.
Starting in summer of 2022, the band will steadily release their stockpile of lockdown songs, all of which were self-recorded, engineered, and produced.
