Stereo Honey are back with their new single, ‘You Are A Monster’.
Billed as “a bold, impressive statement of intent”, it’s the first taster from the band’s upcoming debut album, due for release next year via LAB Records.
Frontman and lyricist Pete Restrick explains: “It’s a song about hopelessness and love but it’s not a hopeless song. The title is meant to be provocative. They’re words I’m not exactly comfortable singing based on the simple realisation that in the midst of your own toxicity and self-loathing you can become your own worst enemy.
“I struggle with anxiety and depression and I wasn’t in the best place emotionally when I wrote these lyrics. I felt trapped in a very negative cycle, constantly punishing myself, unable to climb out of the hole that I’d dug. This song was an attempt to navigate my emotions and come to some sort of new understanding of my well-being, which feels really positive.”
