Honeymoon - "Sure Stuck" (stream)

by Jane Jansen Seymour

23 May 2013

Here's another song for your summer 2013 soundtrack. "Sure Stuck" by Honeymoon has that laid-back groove of '60s and '70s psych pop without being stuck in the past, which is always a fine line.
 

This catchy tune begins with a buzz of synths that weaves throughout vocal harmonies and a percussive swagger. It luxuriates to almost seven minutes, enough to lounge outside and get a sunburn. Honeymoon is a new musical project by two Australian LA-based producers, Aaron Shanahan and Benjamin Plant. After years producing and writing electronic music, they decided to indulge in their love of lo-fi psychedelia. The full length debut album is due later this year, but “Sure Stuck” is currently available as a free download on the band’s Soundcloud page.
