Fast, fuzzy, and punk as fuck. Brighton’s very own Riot Grrl-inspired garage rock legends, Currls, storm back with the hotly-anticipated single, Honey.
Honey is the third single to come from Currls, and its release also comes with the cracking news that debut EP ‘Hello, My Name Is’ is hitting the airwaves on 11 November.
Yeah, but what does it sound like?
Clocking in at 1:42, Honey is a punk rock smash and grab. There is no time for waste as the band tear through hand-clap sing-a-longs, call and response harmony hooks, and burn-the-place down punk breaks.
And if we’re being honest – if you could pick the three key points of your perfect garage punk track, it would probably be them, wouldn’t it?
In the words of Currls’ lead vocalist, and riot leader-in-chief, Holly Deanna, Honey is “About owning your power and individuality. The song plays on the perspective of being caught in the eyes of a stranger but not necessarily matching their assumptions about you – their assumptions don’t have to be you and you can be whoever you want. ‘Honey’ symbolises the twinkling essence of prowess that lives within every individual, especially those that identify as female. An anthem to celebrate being uniquely and authentically your own person.”
I want to shout these words at a live show

Currls are an independent Garage Rock trio that will leave you feeling ready to take on the world. From humble beginnings forming in 2017, this Brighton-Based trio have steadily been making a name for themselves. Their compelling mix of garage rock, punk and pop has landed them on BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens Introducing Show and caught the attention of BBC Introducing’s Melita Dennett, who hunted them down after hearing them at The Great Escape Festival. Most recently, the band were featured on Glastonbury Festival’s Emerging talent longlist 2022 so are definitely ones to watch.
