Band & the Beat Releases Next Digital 45


Check the fall tourdates as well.

By Fred Mills

Raleigh, North Carolina, based Band & the Beat is no stranger to these pages; earlier this year we posted their digital single “Straight and Narrow” b/w “Jimmy’s Jam” and then, in August, a pair of B&TB remixes created by Legendary House Cats. Now, the dreampop, synth-powere duo has released yet another digital single, “Sweet as Honey” b/w “Look Up.” Below, check out a stream of the tracks from their label Fort Lowell, as well as a very unique video for “Honey” – all we can disclose is that a cat and a raccoon figure prominently in the video narrative.

James and Tracy will be touring this fall as well – here are the dates, and more are coming in November.
