It took just three days of studio time for Honeyglaze to record this self-titled debut (though with Dan Carey at the desk, that’s perhaps no record at all); an album characterised by Anouska Sokolow’s softly-spoken vocals, around which her guitar, the bass of Tim Curtis and Yuri Shibuichi’s drum patterns envelop themselves. There’s a homely, comforting aura around it all: not least via single ‘Burglar’, which manages to make like the lovechild of Whitney’s ‘Forever Turned Around’. Elsewhere, the breezy ‘Female Lead’ is reminiscent of walking on a warm spring day; ‘Shadows’ is a slice of sunny alt-pop; and the spoken word of ‘Deep Murky Water’ separates to make way for a harmonious chorus. A debut that can’t help but mark Honeyglaze out as ones to watch.
