Song of the Day: “Psychrocker” by Honeymilk

Today’s song is “Psychrocker” by Honeymilk. The Stockholm, Sweden band is composed of Nikki Nyberg (guitar), Marcus Admund (vocals), Tomas Hellberg (bass), and Erik Fritz (drums).

After having spent countless nights on the sticky dance floors of overpriced bars in Stockholm where posturing musicians polish their image, Honeymilk have had enough! ‘Phychrocker’ started out as a protest song against the superficiality of the Swedish music scene.

Honeymilk wanted to write a song about “people with more arrogance than they merit. People with a bigger idea of themselves, than their talent can live up to,” the band says. When they had finished writing the song, they came to the conclusion – to their greatest disappointment – that they actually wrote it about no other than themselves. “Psychrocker is simply a tribute to Honeymilk.”

The band has been recently been gathering media attention by the likes of Q Magazine, Music Week and KEXP Radio. They have been compared to The Strokes, Ty Segall, Wilco and Velvets.

“Psychrocker” features de Montevert, stage moniker for Ellinor Nilsson. It was produced by Mats Björke (Mando Diao, Thorsten Flinck, etc.) and was mastered at Abbey Road Studios in London. This Stocklhom quartet have a fuzzy psychedelic distortion that would fall in line indie rockers music collection.
