Auckland's NT Honey Shares Self-Titled Debut EP

Tuesday 11th December, 2018 1:55PM

Auckland punk-pop songwriter N. T. Honey (aka Anya Henis of local supergroup Thee Crockettes) has unveiled her debut self-titled solo collection, featuring four catchy tracks of stripped-back, hook-packed philosophical musings. Recalling at times the rhythmic minimalism of NYC no-wavers Y Pants or Kathleen Hannah's loop-based solo project Julie Ruin, N. T. Honey's evocative and skilfully constructed lyrics walk hand in hand with whip-smart guitar melodies and stuttering drums to create her own captivating world of sound. The artist hints live shows may be on the way and generously lifted the lid on the origins of her new songwriting project...

"I've been writing songs on the guitar since I was in Thee Crockettes a few years ago. Recently my awesome flatmate turned our lounge into a recording studio and taught me how to use it so I put some drums to them and went hard. Then she pushed some more buttons to make it sound profesh.

'Nanette' was a way of trying to process the Hannah Gadsby Netflix show where she ripped to pieces her own comedy and the whole of art history - it just had so many good lines in it and I didn't want to forget them. So I guess most of my songs are about female writers and role models, psychology and creativity (I used to be a painter) and watching T.V.

I'm gonna keep going, I have a backlog of things and some new stuff I want to work on. I think I have a show in someone's backyard in Jan and hopefully play some other stuff."
