Budding Los Angeles-based alternative dark pop duo, Blood Honey explores the intricacies of pain & pleasure in their new extended play ‘Don’t Wait Up For Me’.
Blood Honey is a gorgeous body of moody, alt-pop tracks with an indie electronic twist. From the heady “Game Baby” to the standout single “Don’t Wait Up For Me,” Blood Honey’s brilliant culmination of sound pulls influence from some of your favorite trailblazers like Portishead, Massive Attack, and Nine Inch Nails.
New focus track “Don’t Wait Up For Me” is an impressive stand out amongst the many gems in the Blood Honey EP. “I just want to be somebody,” echoes throughout the track with a hypnotizing effect and Jackie’s vocals effortlessly float above a moody bass line and synth driven soundscape.
When Blood Honey members Kevin and Jackie first met, they bonded over their music taste. Kevin was studying cognitive neuroscience but ultimately dropped out of a PhD program to chase after his dream of playing music. Jackie had been struggling to live on her own after being kicked out at 18, but eventually gave into her parents’ wishes and went back to school. However, an Ovarian Cancer diagnosis forced Jackie to drop out. A long, hard battle resulted in the loss of both her ovaries but also resulted in the start of Blood Honey.
Since the release of their debut single in early 2021, the burgeoning duo have seen a steady rise in fans on a weekly basis and have garnered over 44K streams thus far.
