If a band references the Nullarbor, they instantly shoot up to the top of my “Fuck This Is GR9” list. Very esteemed, very exclusive. At this point, it’s pretty much just Lower Plenty. But Wild Honey, on their debut single, through one sly wink, have climbed the ranks, and joined the party.
Good thing that a reference to a place that will definitively break your soul isn’t the only great thing about “Coming Home”. It’s got a laid-back psych-pop exterior, with plenty of gooey, misdemeanour guitar placements. There’s even a damn fine solo that’ll lay out any naysayers right at the end. Left, right, goodnight, as the brightly neon notes pulse and bubble with the glint of a band that loves their 60’s pop records more than their parents.
