Troy Mattison Hicks Reader Find

By Troy Mattison Hicks in New Music on Tuesday 31 January 2012

The video for Honeydrum’s new song, Traci’s on the Phone, is sort of a warped 80′s k-hole of that era’s graphics and fashion. It’s cheesy neon bliss for the masses, taken from the EP from AMDiscs called Pleasures of the Sun.
