THE MONDAY MORNING HI-QUALITY VINYL RIP : Part Forty-nine: HONEY, BABY

I posted a mixtape back on 1 February, and tucked away in the middle was this absolute gem of a 45:-

mp3: Grrrl Gang – Honey, Baby

I wrote that Grrl Gang come from Indonesia, consisting of a one girl/two boy trio of Angeeta Sentana (vocals & guitar), Edo Alventa (guitar) and Akbar Rumandung (bass) having been together since 2016. That was certainly the info I picked up via the Bandcamp page.

I’ve now found a clip of a performance of Honey, Baby as part of what was an online SXSW festival in 2021, and as you’ll see, there are in fact four musicians in the band:-

I really have fallen quite heavily for the charms of this particular single.  Yes, it is very derivative of the indie-pop of the 80s, particularly of the sort which emerged from Glasgow and the surrounding towns, but so what?  

I do hope they manage to find their way to Glasgow for a live show later this year.

  1. Musically mature beyond their years and hitting all the right notes. Agree with JTFL. I don’t care who else they sound like. They use their influences well for a sound all their own. Good stuff!
