With acts like Lana Del Rey and Kali Uchis setting the stage for a resurgence of old school cool in modern pop music, ahead of the curve and soon to be leading the pack is Honeycraft, the nom de plume of Los Angeles based Catherine Rose Smith. Pioneering her unique combination of 70s disco and 90s shoe gaze self titled as Dream Disco, she fits perfectly in a niche of her own design – yet pulls from decades of influence which only adds to her already broad appeal.
Her syrupy sweet voice manages to stay era appropriate for every decade of influence she pulls from and is the perfect combination with producer Thom Monahan’s work (Peter Bjorn and John, Vetiver, Pernice Brothers). With only a small handful of sultry and successful singles in her arsenal so far – Honeycraft is one to watch for 2018.
Ahead of aptly titled debut EP Crystal Ball, Honeycraft shares Rainbow’s End, stating that ‘To me, the rainbow’s end is not a place, but a state of mind. Anyone has the power to make any day magic—this is a song about cultivating the surreal in everyday life.’
