Honeycrush is the solo and 4-piece band project of New York singer-songwriter and poet Alexandra Antonopoulos.  Though a classically-trained vocalist, the Brooklyn artist first picked up guitar in 2021, recording her debut EP Milk Teeth (Dune Altar, 2023) in her home studio to critical acclaim.

Drawing comparisons to artists Cat Power, Scout Niblett, Mark Lanegan, Jeff Buckley and PJ Harvey, there’s a distinctly rock influence even in Honeycrush’s most sombre melodies.  Antonopoulos weaves themes of identity, the fraught struggle of self-discovery and generational experiences of womanhood into lyrics that tiptoe between abstract poeticism and diaristic confession.

Honeycrush performs live as a four-piece rock band, with Antonopoulos (guitar, vocals) Pat Butler (bass) Phil Shore (piano, modular synth) and Chris Wall (drums). Antonopoulos plays solo shows on rare occasions.
