This is punk in the classic sense –
music from the balls, not the brain,
that recalls the gleeful nihilism of
the Dead Boys and Sex Pistols.
— John Gentile, Rolling Stone

Honduras is a Brooklyn based four-piece band by way of Missouri. It was there where founding band members, Patrick Phillips and Tyson Moore met in their single digits and planted the seeds to what would grow into one of the hardest working bands in New York City decades later. Known for their energetic live performances, they embody a refined sound that manages to feel raw and edgy, being played with purpose. Just when you think their music is spiraling out of control with their hands off the wheel, they smoothly transition back into charge and focus. 

Drawing inspiration from a number of genres and eras, Phillips vocals conjure up thoughts of outspoken Brit punk veterans Sex Pistols with his blunt lyrics; while Moore’s surfy hazy textures and calculated dreamy guitar work draws parallels to Deerhunter. Their precise rhythm section, comprised of Josh Wehle on drums and Pauly Lizarraga on bass, creates a driving foundation akin to that of The Strokes and the Arctic Monkeys. 

After recently expanding their music exponentially with the addition of keyboards, the quartet has broke into new territories creating an unrivaled signature sound. Preview the "Need The Sun // Water Sign" 7" below or watch their lyric video here. Pick one up in our store today!
