Honey Wild is a rock ‘n roll band from Brooklyn. Named after a favorite Beach Boys record, 1967’s Wild Honey, they draw influence from melodic 60s rock, as well as the frenetic Afro-Pop of fellow New Yorkers Dirty Projectors and Vampire Weekend. Honey Wild formed in late 2011 through mutual friends at Williamsburg’s Blackbird Parlour, where front-man Joe Stevens was working as a line cook and soon met college friends Andy Payne and Steven Laing, ultimately turning the band into a foursome with the addition of childhood friend Alex Rainer. Honey Wild balances A.D.D. songwriting with pop sensibility, with songs that often surround city life and bohemia.
