Sisters Sally and Natalie Joiner are The Honeyfire, a dream-pop guitar band hailing from Bristol, UK.
Their enchanting harmonies and textured guitar lines reveal an honest and endearing bond between the siblings. Blending themes of fear, failed love across dreamscapes thorugh their poetic lyrics, these ethereal songstresses captivate their audiences with dark and hauntingly beautiful live performances.
Sally and Natalie began writing and performing together from a young age and that shows in the quality of their latest single Replica. It'll be on Ralph's Indie Show next Sunday - 18.9.16.
During their musical development The Honeyfire were briefly joined by drummer Anja Quinn and they began to make a name for themselves supporting national touring artists, such as Mark Morriss (The Bluetones) and Bristol's very own She Makes War, also receiving radio play from BBC 6 Music and BBC Introducing.
The Honeyfire recorded their self-titled debut album with Jim Barr (Portishead and Get The Blessing) at his Bristol studio. With a sound ranging from the energetic driving guitar riffs of 'Parallel' to the a cappella vocals and music made on a saw in 'Unheard Voice', the album was released in December 2014 through Bristol based Jelli Records, and was met with widespread critical acclaim.
Performing at various festivals including Lakefest, Nibley and Bristol Acoustic Music Festival where they appeared alongside Chris Wood, Stackridge and Thea Gilmore, September 2015 saw them performing The London Acoustic Show before reverting to their two piece line up.
The Honeyfire continue to perform across the UK alongside writing and recording material for release in 2016 and 2017. The sisters also host a monthly radio show on Pirate Nation Radio.
