LIVE: Closing party – Saturday
Pale Honey means duo Tuva Lodmark (vocals and guitar) and Nelly Daltrey (drums), performing live as a trio with producer Anders Lagerfors handling both bass and synth to fatten things up. On stage or via their recorded songs, the sound of Pale Honey just floats in a way other bands don’t know how to get even close to, but don’t be fooled by the effortlessness you might sense as there is nothing but hard work behind it. It’s the magic of the band and the songs that creates that special thing, that notion that makes it Pale Honey.
The debut-EP ‘Fiction’ (May 2014) gained some attention right of the bat and the debut album was released in May the following year, getting great reviews both at home and abroad. Later on 2015 the band was nominated as Newcomer of the Year at the annual P3 Gold Gala in Sweden. Their second album, Devotion (October 2017) got even more praise than its predecessor and the year ended with an award as Composer of the Year at the Manifest Gala in Sweden, and again nominated at P3 Gold, only in two categories this time.
2018 the band has been at it live, touring on their own and also supporting the American singer-songwriter Iron & Wine on tour, plus, playing both Roskilde Festival in Denmark and Way Out West, in Gothenburg (two of) the most important festivals in Scandinavia, proving they well know what they do when on stage. Right now they are back in the studio to work on their third album yet some new sounds will see the light of day soon – but first they will headline the second edition of Viva Sounds in their hometown of Gothenburg. We just know it will be really cool.
