It’s been somewhat of a sudden and rapid rise for London quartet Stereo Honey in 2017, that saw the band finish off 2017 as both The Independent & Radio X ‘Ones To Watch 2018’
Having introduced themselves at the start of the year with a stunning debut track ‘Where No One Knows Your Name’ the band made it clear that they were here to lead the resurgence of soulful Indie guitar music, driven by the solid beats of Jake Black, accentuated by the intricate guitar soundscapes of Nicky Boiardi, guided by the grooves of bassist Ben Edwards and always framed by the stunning vocal delivery of singer Pete Restrick.
After releasing their debut ‘Monuments’ EP on the 1st December last year, the lead track ‘The Bay’ went to #1 on the Hype Machine ‘Most Popular’ chart and made it’s way up to #3 Spotify’s Hot New Band playlist and #4 on The Indie List. The track caught the attention of BBC introducing and was soon moving its way all the way up to BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac who announced the band and as one of her ‘New Names’ while Radio X placed the track into their evening playlist as soon as it was in their hands.
Stereo Honey spent 2017 playing shows in the farthest corners of the country with the directive of making sure their name was consistently on the lips of all of who happened to be in the audience, people who left unquestionably proclaiming them as a serious contender to be one of the acts that starts the rise to the top in 2018.
