It took awhile for Larkin Poe to find the sweet spot for "Honey Honey," a track premiering below from the Georgia sister duo's upcoming third studio album Venom & Faith.
"We wrote that one two or three years ago but never found the right dress for it, or the right shoes," Rebecca Lovell tells Billboard. "It was requiring a little bit of extra TLC." With the group producing itself, as it did on 2017's Peach, it had latitude to continue experimenting with programming and sounds, and the tinkering ultimately helped bring "Honey Honey" into better focus.
"I felt like it needed a really strong rhythm section, and I had a folder of one-shots of marching snares and big marching kick drums and metalworks," Rebecca recalls. "It was so exciting to play around and build a section that would complement the song. I love how the start is; We were talking to our engineer as we recorded the song and he was blown away by how spare we wanted it to be, just with an upright bass sound. We stuck to our guns with that and we stumbled on the idea that made the song stick together."
