Listen: Sailor Honeymoon Share Second Single ‘Bad Apple’

Designed to challenge the societal norms of their homeland’s music, Korean punk band Sailor Honeymoon deliver yet another explosive single that targets toxicity and bad energies in friendship groups.

‘Bad Apple’ comes as another glimpse into what we can expect from the 8-track EP that lands on 3rd May this year. From an all-girl band, the project tackles improvised on-the-spot music and shapes it into a uniform, noisy abundance of tricky conversations that all close-knit parties struggle to have at some point. Having this unfiltered vibe, which dare I say is quite unique to Sailor Honeymoon, it showcases an act of rebellion and non-conformity that is unrecognisable in typical, highly-manufactured Korean music. The band urges the notions of original 70s punk music to resurface whilst retaining contemporary motifs in its subject matter and production.

Speaking on the track,“Bad Apple is about realising one of your friends is kind of a closeted bigot… thinking back on revealing little comments that make you realise you don’t share values. Not just for yourself but also for the sake of your other friends (who they were always judging) you make the decision to move on from them as a friend.”
