New Jersey, USA!
These guys used to be called Porridge but now they are Ms.Honey, which is hopefully named after my and also I guess Matilda’s idol. I think Ms.Honey might have been my first crush, I’m sorry for forgetting about you.
This month their debut EP was born and Sunburnt, the EPs closing number, made me just stop and go “whaaaat!”. This is such a sad beautiful song. I’m really bad at interpreting songs, but for me lines such as…
If I lay outside all day
My skin will turn bright red
If I lay in bed all day
I’ll get blue
…make me think of the struggle that is making decisions, and commitment, and how sometimes even the right decisions can still leave a sadness.
I’m a very indecisive person, and Sunburnt is the perfect soundtrack to that feeling of just ghosting through life, and forever saying “I’ll have what you’re having” in bars.
Go check out the whole EP on bandcamp! …while I go listen to Sufjan.
