Following their debut release, Pale Honey was nominated for Newcomer of the Year at the P3 Gold-gala in Sweden, as well as being nominated in no less than three categories for Sweden’s Gaffa Prize! On the album’s same-titled single, the group says it is about “the feeling when you just want to be left alone and you get irresponsible and self-centered. That is not a place where you want to be, but you sometimes end up in any way.” But, they continue – “Now, life feels good because we have a new album to look forward to and share with you all.” Enjoy Some Time, Alone available now on all streaming platforms.
