As a major figure in both Hong Kong Wigs and Black Basements as well as a continuing collaborator with Tyler Jordan and the Negative Space and Outskirts, bassist-vocalist Anastasia Wright clearly has her rock chops on lock. But never one to get glazed over by one genre, Wright’s begun to blossom out into soulful, synth-powered dream pop under the solo handle Honeybush.
Wright’s larger-than-life voice finds a welcome home on top of the decidedly different set of stems, where Honeybush can use her platform to empower, encourage, and offer compassion to all her feminine fellows. Last Friday Honeybush uprooted her outstanding debut single, and is donating half of all purchase proceeds to The Loveland Foundation, a non-profit that connects black women and girls with free therapy. Keep on the lookout for a corresponding music video when it drops within the next couple weeks, and get a whiff of Wright’s newfound sonic shrubbery on “Northern Lights”!
