Sweet tunes from pop band ‘Honey’ By Julia Czerwonatis

Four-piece pop group Honey brings sweet new tunes into the Wellington music scene. Founded in March Honey released their first single Can’t be on the Record earlier this month, together with a music video. Lead vocalist and Hataitai resident Alexander Reid said it all started with him and his friend Matt Dixon jamming at home together. “We were trying new songs, some of which I had written,” Alexander explained. “And then it went from there.” His wife Lydia Reid and Andy Hockey joined the crew shortly after and together they created Honey. Alexander described their music style as “dirty pop with an 80s nostalgic feel to it”. “It’s the sort of music that

makes me feel good inside,” Alexander said. “It’s easy to get into and great to dance to.” Alexander said he and his wife are writing most of the songs. “We rent a small studio for recording: it’s tiny dedicated space but that’s you want, really.” Honey had their first gig on CubaDupa at the end of March, “which went quite well.” “I want to see how far we can take it with Honey,” Alexander said. “Most of us have other occupations next to our music but we are all loving making music together.” Alexander said Wellington had a good music industry and that there many gig opportunities for the band. Honey would release another track next month. Can’t be on the Record is available on Soundcloud and Youtube.
