Simple, but substantial. Honey Watts say just as much in their silence as they do in their melodies and lyrics. That's not to say Liz Fullerton's vocals can be ignored; she at once disarms and alarms as each song is dressed in vowels heavy with moans, and lines that are sporadically clipped to expose a shy, silly vulnerability. She has honed her songwriting to address life’s quieter moments as effectively as the loud.
The dynamics are complemented by Carl Cheeseman's guitar work, which seems to echo and answer simultaneously, and Tom Bendel's sympathetic and grounded percussion. As a whole, the music almost asks the listener for permission to speak with his grievances, her sorrow, their thankfulness, and in return rewards the patient purveyor with more patience. The sophomore album, Geraldine, was released in April 2018.
