Honey Sweet

Songfacts®:

  • A track from Blossoms' self-titled debut album, the Coral singer James Skelly is on production duties here. Despite Skelly's psychedelic approach to his own band, he was adamant the Stockport five-piece should push for a polished pop sound. Speaking to NME, frontman Tom Ogden said: "I thought it might be too far down that road. But James had said, 'You need a tune that sounds like Taylor Swift could sing it', so we showed him ['Honey Sweet'] it and he went, 'That's boss.' Soon as he heard us, he was like, 'You aren't an underground little psych-y band – you should be all over the radio.' And we were like, 'Yeah!'"
