Honeytalks Are Shooting In Super 8

The Welsh pop-punks star in the movie of their lives in their latest single and video.

Honeytalks are ready for their closeup in their new single and lyric video Super 8 — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

The second single of the year from the up-and-coming Welsh trio, Super 8 is a short, sharp snapshot of surging, soaring pop-punk complete with punchy, propulsive drums, gritty guitars and anthemic vocals — along with a time-shifting gait and cinematically atmospheric sonics that boldly break the stylistic mold. Lyrically, the track is about breaking out of life’s comfort zone, grasping what you desire and becoming the hero in the movie of your own life:

“Sometimes I feel unstoppable
And sometimes the ether eats me up and spits me
Out on the floor
I bet you never knew, knew, knew
It never goes
I’ve been sitting on the fence now for some time
I’m paralyzed in a perfect life
Watch me fade away
And film it on a Super 8.”

The most pertinent line in the song — “I’m paralyzed in a perfect life” — reminds us existence isn’t always as it seems. Although we may value what we have and feel privileged to have or be where we are, sometimes we still need help and support. And that’s OK. “We want people to know that life runs much deeper, and it’s something we all need to remember,” the band say in a press release. “Nothing is as it seems.”

Maybe so. But Honeytalks’ upward trajectory seems undeniable. The pop-punk power trio’s 2022 debut EP Over It received a fantastic response across all streaming platforms in addition to support from BBC Introducing for the tracks Parachute and New Heights. Soon after, Honeytalks were approached by award-winning producer Phil Gornell (All Time Low, You Me At Six, Bring Me The Horizon) of Steele City Studios in Sheffield to record a second EP, There’s Hope in Hopeless, due in the early fall on Affiant Records.

Mental health is a subject close to Honeytalks’ hearts, and is commonly heard throughout their lyrics. They feel empowered to broadcast their own thoughts and feelings; as well as many others familiar struggles, in hopes that their songs may just help those in a similar situation of need. Honeytalks — guitarist Adam Scott, bassist Dave Griffiths and drummer Lauren James — have a full state of shows on their itinerary this year, along with numerous summer festival appearances to be announced.
