MOONLIGHT EP OUT EVERYWHERE NOW.
Honey Gentry makes music to daydream to. Described by NME – who included Honey Gentry in the 2019 #NME100 – as “elegantly sad pop to break your heart”, Gentry’s style is soaked with reverb and intrigue. Her debut EP, Moonlight (2018) comprises four tracks all constructed of vocals and layers of luxurious guitar work courtesy of collaborator Ruben Elbrond-Palmer. Momentum around Gentry has been building online since early 2017, and plans are already underway for a release followup to Moonlight.
“The rising singer-songwriter making elegantly sad pop to break your heart” – NME, The NME 100: Essential New Artists for 2019
According to NME:
“USP: A sigh that feels like it weighs a tonne, but only serves to make her songs more magical.
Why you’re going to love them: Honey Gentry knows how to craft a song for those days when you can barely lift your head off the pillow – lethargic but beautiful and poised in its misery. That all she needs is her emotive voice and barely more than a guitar to make you feel at one with her marks her out as someone very special.
Key track: ‘Bleed, Honey’.
