Jangly guitars are one of those infectious qualities that hook you in, and Forever Honey knows how to use that jangle. Combine that with the ambience heard in similar Dream Pop artists such as Soccer Mommy and Alvvays, and you have a compelling sound that is laid underneath clever lyrics about some of life’s hardest pills to swallow.
Their new single “Twenty-Five” describes the revelation of the “silver lines growing parallel in my hair” and the second leg of coming of age, something that seems to always be on the distant horizon until it’s at your front door. This track was conceived after Forever Honey relocated to Brooklyn and songwriter Liv Price went the better part of 8 months without a mirror where she learned the more subtle barrier between youth and adulthood.
Price’s lyrics illustrate the qualities shared between herself and her mother as context to reflect on the relationship among maturity, self-realization and acceptance. To drive this point home, Price’s mother is featured in the music video for “Twenty-Five” which can be viewed below. The rest of the EP, Pre-Mortem High, is available April 24th.
