The Family Battenberg Share New Single "Runny Hunny"

Cardiff, Wales psychedelic rock/psych band The Family Battenberg have shared their new single ‘Runny Hunny’.

Born out of a band-wide love for garage rock, ‘Runny Hunny’ plays with the ethos of pushing the limits and bending the rules of recording equipment to produce overly saturated and noisy results.

The band successfully create fuzz fuelled walls of sound, draped behind Lennon-esc double trackedvocals, with plenty of reverb to boot. Thematically, the song is a commentary on the universalwish of a stable income, from the perspective of a fresh faced arts graduate. The track wasrecorded by The Family Battenberg at Cardiff’s Music Box rehearsal rooms and mixed by Eliot in the back room of his flat.

Of the track, producer and lyricist Eliot Jones explains:

“Runny Hunny truly is just about having a whinge. Universities do a fantastic job of convincing you that you’ll walk into your dream jobweeks after graduation. ‘LIGHT THE BEACONS, CALL ABBEY ROAD, A 20-SOMETHING POST GRAD HAS JUST COMPLETED A MUSIC PRODUCTION DEGREE’! Being back at your parents house and catching the train to the job centre on a Wednesday morning is quite sobering after you’ve had your photos in your funny hat.”
