Sunday Sounds: The Honey Trees, “To Be With You”

The Honey Trees is one of the few bands with a solid aesthetic that perfectly compliments their sound. In their first music video, for the song “To Be With You”, the vintage-inspired, classic imagery and fairy-tale narrative perfectly conveys their musical style and epitomizes their charm.

Their debut EP, Wake the Earth, is a beautifully graceful and cohesive album. Becky Filip’s vocals are consistently ethereal and elegant throughout the record, expressing earnest emotion and vivid imagery, all atop enchanting instrumentation. Both Filip and bandmate Jacob Wick are also artists– Filip is a fine artist whose paintings are available as prints for purchase at her etsy store, while Wick is a graphic designer– so Wake the Earth has the stunning artwork to match! They are currently out of the physical copy at their webstore, but it’s still available on Amazon and iTunes.

A few favorites from the past week!

  • As I was reading my feed, I kept seeing the Audrey Grace Boutique mentioned, and it’s official– it’s my new favorite shop. Not only is their whole aesthetic is absolutely charming, the stock is to-die-for, but some of the models are ladies whose work I already love!

  • In the same fashionable vein, Gala Darling and Nubby Twiglet took a vacation to SoCal and traveled in style. The photos are fabulous and they look like they had so much fun!
  • As for the East coast, Gala also has a couple of words of advice for those who want to move to NYC.
  • Of course, if the coastlines aren’t your thing, Mandi, formerly of the blog Here’s Looking at You Kid, has a new site, Making Nice in the Midwest!
  • Eisley and Merriment released a limited hand-numbered split 7″ that can be purchased here. As always, Eisley merch has great art and design. It looks like there are still some copies left, get on it!
