Ride it, your horsey
Your saddle's waiting
Come and jump on it
Honey Hahs is three London sisters aged 10, 12 and 15 playing indie-folk-pop with a cheeky sense of humour.
Honey Hahs have an album coming out on Rough Trade later in the summer when they will also be playing the brilliant End of the Road festival.
Over the past four years, Dan Lyons has perhaps been best known as a drummer, playing with bands such as Fat White Family, Misty Miller and Phobophobes. But his real job is a songwriter.
2017 saw Dan finally stepping onto centre stage; fronting and performing under his own name and calling upon a host of musicians from the South London music scene to complete the line up for his backing band.
The songs written for Dan’s debut album were mostly done so between Paris and London, during a long and difficult summer, crowded with personal loss and intrepid soul searching. They paint a picture of what it is to live in a city, to deal with depression and anxiety, and offer a keyhole glimpse into an intricate and fragile heart.
Dan Lyons makes music that is shot-through with emotion. An array of beautiful, intelligent and heartbreakingly honest songwriting.
"Quintessential surrealist Anglo - pop” with echoes of Echo & The Bunnymen, and 'Rubber Soul' era Beatles entwine with lo-fi pop sensibilities that nod towards The Go Betweens, Half Japanese and The Clean.
