In 2010 The Honey Month won Triple J Unearthed and opened the Splendour in the grass festival and then was selected to play at One Movement music conference in Perth. 2011 sees them writing new music and growing even more as a band.

Biography

Their collaboration dates back to seven years ago, when two eleven year old boys with a keyboard, a tape recorder and an affection for punk recorded their first song over the top of a dusty Tom Petty cassette.

After acquiring a set of drums and an electric guitar, a three piece band was formed, playing together until early 2008, when a strange transition fuelled by a mutual love of eclectic music occurred. This is where The Honey Month begun. The band, based in Brisbane, now consists of Thomas, Liam, David, Jonathan, and Hamish.

An obsession with unconventional instruments saw the boys acquiring a piano accordion, melodica, musical saw, kalimba, mandolin, double bass and ukulele to become intrinsic parts of their ever expanding collective sound. Dedication to their music has seen The Honey Month not sleeping until they are learnt with competence.

Crafting unique songs which portray a musical freedom uncommon with their peers, The Honey Month create haunting lyrical themes of mortality and betrayal which sit comfortably with the elements whilst threatening a grand conclusion.

Lyrics

Foliage

Written By: The Honey Month

Brown foliage, the autumn time
All the clouds in my breath
And you say the grass is as tall as the sky
Well at least as tall as my head

Brown foliage, losing my mind
Where is my body taking my head
And you say the grass is starting to die
That the season isn't my friend

Brown foliage, the autumn time
All the clouds in my breath
And you say the grass is as tall as the sky
Well at least as tall as your head
