The third full-length effort from L.A.-based duo HONEYHONEY, 3 is an album born from fascination with the sweet and the sleazy, light and dark, danger and magic. Working with Dave Cobb (the producer behind Jason Isbell's Southeastern and Sturgill Simpson's Metamodern Sounds in Country Music), lead singer/banjo player/violinist Suzanne Santo and vocalist/guitarist Ben Jaffe twist their gritty, harmony-driven brand of Southern-flavored rock & roll through tales of lost souls, broken boys, girls with gold in their spit. Equal parts inward-looking and endlessly curious, the two songwriters also take a mirror to their own experience in lust and heartache and never shy away from revealing the messy truth. And whether they rattle or soothe or joyfully inspire, HONEYHONEY instill each song with a straight-from-the-gut honesty and elegance of storytelling that make both cathartic and electrifying.

The follow-up to 2011's Billy Jack (named one of the top albums of the year by American Songwriter and hailed for finding "the common pop thread between alt. country, spaghetti western soundtracks and swampy blues" by Paste), was recorded in HONEYHONEY's one-time home of Nashville with a lineup of locals that includes musicians like Robbie Turner (a pedal steel guitarist who's played with Johnny Cash and The Highwaymen). And while the album finds HONEYHONEY offering their most finely crafted melodies and richly textured sound to date, the band also embodies a loose and scrappy energy drawn out with some help from Cobb. "Dave never let me obsess over my vocals," says Santo, whose sultry but tender voice intensifies the intimacy of each track. "He'd just be like, 'Nope, that was raw, we got it, we're good.'" Adds Jaffe: "He didn't really allow us to overthink anything, which is great for what we do -- the more barriers you can remove to get to the soul of it, the better." 

Though Santo and Jaffe consider their continued growth as songwriters to be the lifeblood of the band, their live show also makes for a major element of the HONEYHONEY experience. "The reason we write songs is to express something real, and being able to engage with people directly the way we do onstage is a really important part of that," Jaffe says. Fueled by their easy chemistry and between-song banter, the duo's stage presence adds a whole new level of spirit and passion to their sound. "If there's any kind of goal to what we're doing, it's to shake things up for the people listening," says Santo. "Whether they need to dance or get happy or get angry or whatever, we can make that happen for them. We'll make you cry and then make you laugh in under ten minutes."
