Pale Honey are a two piece group from Sweden. Still quite new in their homeland, the duo have only played a handful of live shows in the UK.
So it's easy to let their music do the talking. Sparse yet emphatic, there are shades of early PJ Harvey or Sleater-Kinney in the directness of the songwriting.
Alongside this, though, Pale Honey have an off piste melodic touch, a whimsical side which recalls the Flying Nun stable.
New track 'Youth' opens with deft guitar and skittering drums, before suddenly snapping into gear.
Capable of shifting intensity within a few seconds, Pale Honey have a remarkable sense of control for such a fresh group.
