Honeybucket prefer to think of their music as "new grass" rather than traditional bluegrass.
"All three of us have more of a pop rock background," singer-guitarist Adam Reifsnyder once told us. "I think we write these more poppy bluegrass traditional rock songs and put this spin on it."
Now, the band has just released a new single, "Bad Thoughts," that shows off another side of its sound. The song is available on Spotify and iTunes.
"The song is a dark, intimate departure from our previous outings," says Reifsnyder, adding that the band wanted a Simon & Garfunkel-meets-Nashville vibe for the track. "This marks a step in a new direction for the band in terms of recording: we've added drums and electric guitar for a much fuller sound."
The new single marks the group's first release since 2015's Stompin' Grounds, the album that included an inventive rendition of the Kid Cudi track "Pursuit of Happiness."
