Christopher Owens and Co. unleashed our second official taste off their forthcoming Girls LP, Father, Son, Holy Ghost, this week in the form of “Honey Bunny,” setting aside the brooding, psychedelic-rock-invoking debut single, “Vomit,” for surf-rock guitars that would make Dick Dale proud and sunny, more pop-friendly melodies.
“‘Honey Bunny’ was my 19th song to write,” Owens told NPR. “I wrote it on my birthday in 2008. I think the fact that it’s No. 19 gives it a little perspective. My first songs were kind of like, ‘Ahhhh, Help!’ This one has a bit of swagger to it, and some reflection about my mother.”
Check out a stream of the promising tune below. Meanwhile, Girls are set for an extensive fall tour, kicking off in September with a set at FYF Fest in Los Angeles, crossing North America, and then heading to Europe in November. You can read the full itinerary here.
