Shai Brides - Honeydew

Updated: Aug 1, 2020

Birmingham based band Shai Brides have returned with their synth-pop power track 'Honeydew'.



Following the release of 'Tokoyo Drift' we all wondered how they would beat such a hit song, but the band have done it again. With creating a sound that will get you hooked through indie pop realness.


With evident influence from the likes of White Lies and Friendly Fires; Shai Brides have taken their own take through writing music that is inspired by digital culture and pop naivety, creating a sound that evolves alongside the technological chaos.



Before the release of the song, the band said: "Honeydew is a song about doubts and nervous love. It's about new feelings and old insecurities, being eager to accelerate but hesitant to lose control. We wanted to create something that was just as warm and summery as it is cold and autumnal; a veneer of vintage pop pleasantness masking a melancholy depth."


From gaining support from BBC 6Music and BBC introducing in West Midlands for their synth-punk roots. Shai Brides have taken on a different route, which shows their growth within the music scene and cement their place alongside the giants who have been leading synth-pop wave in indie music.
