TVD Live Shots: Honeyblood and
2:54 at DC9, 2/28

PHOTOS: RICHIE DOWNS | For anyone missing the ’90s, specifically the days of Riot Grrrls owning the stage, Honeyblood is what has been missing from your playlist.

Their particular brand of tart pop vibrates with fuzzy guitars and mellow vocals. This Scottish duo brought their assaulting feminist pop anthems to DC9 this past Saturday.

I was first turned on to them after hearing “Super Rat” and was hooked. Where their contemporaries turn love songs into a melodramatic whine-fests, Honeyblood takes that world and spits in its face. Their nonchalance is beguiling and captivating, they aren’t here for your entertainment, but their music is.

    Personally, I thought Honeyblood’s drumming style overpowered most of the songs that weren’t flat-out rockers. The rockers, of course, were great. Perhaps these grrrls should riot a bit more.
    I am surprised by your lack of comment about 2:54. While their droney, minor key style is less to my liking than Honeyblood, I thought they were the much more polished and substantive band.
