Superstar and old friend of the band KT Tunstall came to work with Blood Wine or Honey after they contributed a DJ mix for her lockdown series ‘KTRave’ and ‘Attraction’ is the irresistible result. Tumbling bass lines, found-bounce beats and a Buddy Rich-esque drum chorus smashed out by Tim Weller (Marc Almond, Future Sound of London, Goldfrapp, The Chemical Brothers, David Axelrod) come together in a bonkers production led by KT’s passionate vocals.

Hong Kong based hypno-tropicalia duo Blood Wine or Honey are set to release their second album ‘DTx2’ on 25th June 2021. Made up of seasoned multi-instrumentalists James Banbury (synths, bass, percussion, cello) and Joseph von Hess (vocals, clarinet, sax, percussion), they create a heaving, heady brew of brazen sax themes, lo-fi/hi-tech electronics, densely layered cello inflections and motorik drums. ‘DTx2’ follows BWoH’s 2018's debut album 'Fear & Celebration', described in Mojo as “Post-punk sax mingled with ghostly choruses and lo-fi hi-tech electronics”, and 2019’s ‘Tomorrow’ EP that The Vinyl Factory noted “nods to Ethio-jazz melodies, syncopated electronics and raw sax punches a la Comet Is Coming”. Their 2017 breakout track 'Anxious Party People', from the EP of the same title, received a shortlist nomination for Track Of The Year at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards. BWoH’s music has been played by BBC 6 Music, NTS, Worldwide FM (UK), Radio Nova (FR), Beats In Space (US), RTÉ (IE), Radio Bern (CH), Radio X (DE), CR2 903 (HK), KCRW (US), and Bandcamp Weekly.
Blood Wine or Honey's distinctive sound is created in the industrial warehouses and hidden rural settlements of Hong Kong,
surrounded by the low-end throb of heavy machinery, the lingering scent of hand sanitiser and the humidity of the South China Sea....more
