Back in the early days of Joyzine we were introduced to the unexpectedly vibrant Maltese music scene, with bands like Beangrowers, Bark Bark Disco and Clandestines all becoming firm favourites around these parts, but as the years have gone by our links with the Mediterranean archipelago have gradually gone cold. We were delighted then to get an email out of the blue from Fuzzhoneys, a bluesy garage rock duo, due to hit these shores for a few live dates alongside some of our homegrown favourites in support of the release of their debut album Love Juice.
To whet your appetite for their arrival, new single ‘Candy’ is a growling stomper built around a bassy groove and sumptuous vocals; it is both as sweet and as distorted as their name would suggest.
