Hey, do you like the late ’70s Punk Rock? I sure do. Even before I read a single word about this band, Honduras, I listened to their great tune, “Mistake,” and was so cheered by the song’s seamless infusion of subtle yet tangible influences of early Red Kross (yes, I just typed that) and The Buzzcocks. Oh boy, who even does that anymore? Answer: No one. No one does it.
So, imagine my level of ecstatic delight when I read that Honduras‘ founding members, Patrick Phillips (vocals/guitar) and Tyson Moore (guitar/vocals) are actually inspired by late 70’s punk (emphasis mine), but (quoting from Press Release) “[are] mixing in aspects of garage and indie music that followed. Honduras played Brooklyn’s DIY venue scene tirelessly and garnered a reputation for amazing live performances, being compared to bands like The Sex Pistols and The Buzzcocks.” I enjoy reading stuff like that, because it just validates the fact that I know my shit. I can’t believe how much I rule.
Another thing I like about “Mistake” is how it mixes art in with the music by having brightly-colored paints poured over the lead vocalist’s head repeatedly. So simple, as yet so effective. Having two EPs under their belts, Honduras’ upcoming debut LP will be released in the spring of 2015! Like them on the FaceBook at This Link! Enjoy!
