Honningbarna, Rock City Basement

  • Thursday 22nd November 2012

Honningbarna are a Norwegian punk band with absolute contempt for the establishment, snarling lyrics, riffs that kick the floor , all mixed with cello and organ solos - Honningbarna take you by scruff of the neck and won’t let you down until you have knelt and received a solid lesson in southern punkrock!

There name translated into English means 'Honey Children'. They debuted in 2010 with the EP Honningbarna. In January 2011 they won a new music competition, Årets Uhørt by the radio station NRK P3 with the song Borgerskapets utakknemlige sønner ("Ungrateful sons of the bourgeoisie"). On the 25th March the same year they released their debut album La alarmane gå (Let the alarms go). It won the rock award for Spellemannprisen 2011. They were also nominated in the Newcomers category.
