Honeysuckle is a Boston based folk band that frequently tours the country playing shows. Their new song “Fire Starter” is driven by acoustic instrumentation and harmonies that are as smooth as honey. Their story-telling lyrics share thoughts about a geographically change in life, more specifically the thought of leaving the city they live in to go back to their more simple hometown. The lyrics come across as authentic and telling, feeling quite emotional. Holly McGarry sings many things that many people are afraid to open up about. Only a true artist is brave enough to be truly honest in their music. The opening lyrics of the song talk about singing for dinner on tour, and drinking too heavily. The song dives into the topic of family, traveling and gambling. Perhaps, this is the sound of life getting a bit too overwhelming for the singer. The instrumentation gives the song a traditional sound and a peaceful vibe, almost as if the listener is floating on a cloud while listening to the song. Honeysuckle will release another album in 2019. They are currently being streamed on Spotify and NPR playlists.
