FOLK ROCK PROJECT COVEY SHARES “SAME WHITE SHOES” VIA THE WILD HONEY PIE NEW ALBUM HAGGARTY OUT SEPTEMBER 22

LISTEN & SHARE: “Same White Shoes”

“There’s something wonderfully satiating about the way the guitar tones compliment each other — satisfying melodic intricacies entering and exiting at the right moments. “
– The Wild Honey Pie

Boston-based indie folk rock project Covey releases single “Same White Shoes,” via The Wild Honey Pie and announces their debut LP Haggarty, due out September 22, 2017. With only a couple singles out and no major label support, Covey has amassed over 110,000 monthly listeners on Spotify, and single “Comes And Goes,” currently stands at over 2 million plays. Since relocating to the United States for school in 2010, Covey has managed to connect with listeners across the world through soul-baring lyrics and raw vocals.

Today, The Wild Honey Pie premieres Covey’s lead single “Same White Shoes” stating, “While the song’s tone suggests remorse, the chorus’ la la las manage to make light of the heavy situation.” The track comes off the forthcoming release Haggarty. Covey is fronted by British multi-intrumentalist and vocalist, Tom Freeman. The album maintains Covey’s signature folk sound, with a punk pop influences and indie rock flare. The 10-track LP deals with themes of isolation, nostalgia, and navigating through distance and disarray. Haggarty draws similarities from Covey’s previous releases, like “Bows” and “Daisies,” with a more evolved sound. It features performances by Guillermo Goldschmied on bass, Adam Marks on keys, and Dillon Rovere on drums. The album was mixed and mastered by Alex Garcia-Rivera and recorded at Mystic Valley Recording, an all analog studio in Medford, MA. The record will be available in CD, Vinyl, and limited Cassettes (which were put together personally by Tom), and will be distributed digitally by Spotify, Bandcamp, iTunes, and Google Play.
