Honey Wild is a Rocknroll band from Brooklyn. Named after a favorite Beach Boys record, 1967's Wild Honey, they draw influence from melodic 60s rock, as well as the frenetic Afro-Pop of fellow New Yorkers Dirty Projectors and Vampire Weekend. The band formed in late 2011 through mutual friends at Williamsburg's Blackbird Parlour (since closed), where front-man Joe Stevens was working as a line cook and soon met college friends Andy Payne and Steven Laing. They began practicing in a storage unit in Queens, and forged a sound balancing pop sensibility with inventive, sometimes A.D.D. structure. Songs often surround city life and bohemia, merging the bizarre with the everyday. In April of 2013, the band released a three-song EP, Mea Culpa, and toured the Midwestern U.S. for two weeks. Currently, they are working on new material for a debut album and playing shows throughout the city. Joe Sparrow of ANBAD writes, "[the music] immediately elevates itself from good guitar pop to good guitar pop with added curiosities. And all of a sudden, Honey Wild are a band to watch."
