Dead Little Penny initially started as the dreamy alt-country project of vocalist and songwriter, Hayley Smith, and drummer/synth player, Simon Buxton. The duo is currently based in Auckland, New Zealand, but originally come from the UK, with Hayley born in the Wirral, Merseyside, and Simon Buxton from Devon. They eventually evolved into a fuzz-ridden, shoegaze-inclined pop act, and have just revealed their first official studio recording. It is a noisy, beautiful, self-produced track, titled Honeycomb.

"After reading an article about the Radium Girls, who contracted radiation poisoning from painting watch faces with luminous paint, I was inspired to write Honeycomb, a song that explores the toxic effects of infatuation and volatile love. With what started as a well-paid job with the added bonus of being able to glow in the dark, the bodies of the Radium Girls began to deteriorate, ravaging them from the inside out and sending them to their untimely deaths, and the imagery of this sad story stayed with me for a long time before I sat down and wrote this track," Hayley Smith says about the song.

Honeycomb comes accompanied by an impressive music video, directed by Rodney Fisher. The clip's great looking, vintage visuals show up like a perfect fit to the music's fineness.
