You may want to think twice before hastening to place a label on Wildhoney – often referenced as shoegaze or along the same ilk as My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive, the band would rather express their song-writing and music as genre-free. The band, consisting of vocalist Lauren Shusterich, drummer Zach Inscho, guitarists Joe Trainor and Marybeth Mareski and bassist Alan Everhart, cites The Beach Boys, Cocteau Twins and African music and dub reggae as influences, but aim to create a musical project that’s non-gendered and entirely their own. Shusterich writes the majority of the songs for Wildhoney, with inspiration often transpiring after dark periods of her life yet giving herself time to reflect and deliberate before writing her lyrics. Trainor also echoes that sentiment of laying down guitar melodies post-depression, and relying on poppier licks and rhythms to help battle through difficult times.

 

 

Wildhoney’s stong DIY ethos and individual aesthetic has certainly paid off; the band released their EP Your Face Alone last month and Sleep Through It earlier in 2015. They played multiple shows at CMJ in New York City, and are scheduled on Fun Fun Fun Fest’s lineup in Austin, Texas. Follow us on Instagram at @anonmag for Wildhoney’s takeover today as they capture the festival’s best sights and sounds! You can also catch the band play live for Fun Fun Fun’s Nite show tonight at 611 E. 7th (formerly Red 7). You can keep up to date with the band on their Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr pages.
