Biography

Honeyspiders come on like a knife through the streets cutting open the dark, spilling out it's coloured secrets into the ether. Their sound takes shape as a blend of swaggering rock n' roll, hazy opium den grooves, and wash. In a wave of tape saturation, the secret beat kicks in. Chris Harrison's angular guitar work is a searing chorus of dinosaur howls as  bass lines lumber and drag the caravan onwards. Square wave and psychedelic organs pinwheel and swirl through the air. All the while, Jeremy Harrison is the red tar voice in the density. Ambivalent and eternally cool, even when he's all lost in freakout. A revolving cast of guests and co-conspirators aid them along the way rounding out live performances and recordings, adding a shifting, malleable quality to the Honeyspiders music.

Lyrics

Sweet

Written By: Honeyspiders

hey, sweet
on the wall
you got it all figured out
yr black tar eyes
the sharp knives
spitting out

hey, sweet
walking on
sounding gongs through the inky night
yr reptile hide
glowing white in electric light
if I pulled yr string
would you come back down?
I wanna pull yr strings
make you come back down

hey, sweet this as far as it goes
yr sour heart doesn't feel anymore
hey, sweet this as far as it goes
hey, sweet

you take what you come for
and then yr gone

hey, sweet
all our games
end the the same all the time
a saccharine word, a velvet curse
a bitter song
if I pulled yr string
would you come back down?
I wanna pull yr heartstrings
make you come back down

fading out
you say you want to live in the clouds
waiting now
for yr fragrant peace to come around

New Blooms

Written By: Honeyspiders

chased yr shadow through the fields
got caught in up in the vines
watched them all make their ways
read my fortune in the neon signs

I hang around, wait for yr new blooms
won't yr air come fill this room

oh, come on

nailed yr wishes to the wall
tied a knot for everyone
just more traps to lay in wait
watched them all come undone

I hang around, wait for yr new blooms
let yr rain fill up these tombs

oh, come on

and if it comes, it couldn't be too soon
if it's ever there
the empty space fills up our hearts
we keep the math in our hair

I hang around, wait for yr new blooms
won't yr air come fill this room

oh, come on

Magdalene

Written By: Honeyspiders

Magdalene
a whole garden of things
live underneath her feet
in a white city by the sea
in a white city by the sea

in the dark
her skin like pearl or bone
a cigarette and the radio
she comes like the falling snow
she comes like the falling snow

Magdalene
sleeping behind her eyes
there's a jewel that you'll never find
she moves through me all the time
she moves through me all the time
