About Chasing Honeybees

‘Chasing Honeybees’ is a welcome progression of the pop genre, with nods to the pop music of the 60’s (including a modern update of the Phil Spector classic ‘And Then He Kissed Me’), 80’s shoegaze artists like The Cocteau Twins’, post-dubstep and R’N’B, with songs that drift serenely between heartache and ecstasy. “Shoegaze had a big impact on me – Kevin Shields is one of my favourite producers”, says Peter. “I’m also really inspired by Phil Spector, I love his dedication to finding the ‘perfect’ pop track.”

The music still retains the trademark lush production that Stumbleine is noted for, with strong melody lines and compelling lyrics penned by Violet Skies.

With Violet now involved in the songwriting, the likes of ‘Clip My Wings’ and ‘Just Tell Me’ sparkle and smoulder. Peter admits she’s given Stumbleine a face and stamped his music with her personality. “She makes the music stand out and has opened the door to a wider audience,” he says.

The collaboration has been so productive that a full-length follow-up album is scheduled for release in April 2014. “These five tracks give a good indication of what’s to come – I’ve got more aces lined up for the album. I’ve pushed myself much harder over the past year to create something a bit different”, says Peter.

With ‘Chasing Honeybees’, Peter has added Violet’s vitality to the dreamy essence of Stumbleine and the results are breathtaking.
