Synth-pop powerhouses Shai Brides have released their brand new synth-pop power track ‘Honeydew’.

Shai Brides write pop music trapped in a disintegrating world of extreme temperatures and ceaseless information, caught between blinding screen light on all sides. Inspired by digital culture, mass destruction and pop naivety, the band create a sound that evolves alongside the technological chaos which birthed it.

‘Honeydew’ is a change in direction for the quintet, moving on from their synth-punk roots which saw them championed by BBC 6Music and BBC Introducing in West Midlands. Shai Brides have also enjoyed a host of big support slots, which has seen them play alongside the likes of Larkins, Fling, Orchards and Valeras.

‘Honeydew’ is set to cement Shai Brides’ place alongside giants White Lies, Metronomy and Friendly Fires, who have been leading the synth-pop wave in indie music since the noughties.


“Honeydew is a song about doubts and nervous love. It’s about new feelings and old insecurities, being eager to accelerate but hesitant to lose control. We wanted to create something that was just as warm and summery as it is cold and autumnal; a veneer of vintage pop pleasantness masking a melancholy depth.”
