Melbourne-based alt-rockers Sunday Honey have dropped their new single, Silver Lining. To celebrate the release, the band have curated an exclusive playlist for MILKY, full of songs that inspired the track.
“It’s a story about a woman losing herself in the grips of society and going down the path of substance abuse. We are all strong advocates for mental health, so we felt this song resonated a lot with us. We’ve written a lot of our songs about mental health and substance abuse.” the band share,
“The bare bones of it was written in Paris by Fox when he was travelling Europe, and then once he was back we all added our own unique flair to it until it was at a spot which we all loved.”
THAT’S WHY GOD MADE THE RADIO - BEACH BOYS
We took inspiration for the harmonies from this song. For Fox, this song had a massive impact on his love for music. It was a song that was played around the house.
SWEET CHILD O’ MINE - GUNS N’ ROSES
We wanted that classic intro/drum sound of the 80’s. You remember the first time you hear that intro and it always helps you to remember the good times. We wanted to recreate that feeling in ‘Silver Lining’.
BITTER SWEET SYMPHONY - THE VERVE
This inspired the atmosphere and the vibe of the song. We always remember listening to this song for the first time and how big the atmosphere felt.
HELPLESSLY HOPING - CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG
Another one which inspired the harmonies.
STRAIGHT LINES - SILVERCHAIR
Inspired that classic Aussie rock sound. We all grew up listening to this one, so we wanted to recreate that old school feel whilst having a new age twist to it.
DELETE - DMA’S
Inspired the big open structure. This is a song that you always crank up high when it comes on and becomes a part of the environment that you’re in. We want ‘Silver Lining’ to follow this route.
AM I EVER GONNA SEE YOUR FACE AGAIN - THE ANGELS
We wanted to make a happy sounding song with a sad story line. As ‘Silver Lining’ is about a woman going through a difficult time, whilst having an upbeat and positive sounding feel, you can hear the influence.
I STILL HAVEN’T FOUND WHAT I’M LOOKING FOR - U2
That big stadium anthem feel. when we start to play stadiums we just know that this track is going to sound absolutely massive with a huge crowd singing the song with us.
PRIVATE UNIVERSE - CROWDED HOUSE
Heavily influenced melody lines. Took a lot of inspo for the vocal melodies from this track.
THESE DAYS - POWDERFINGER
The guitar sounds we took inspiration for. Another song that we grew up listening to, always stops people in their tracks.
Silver Lining is out now!
