The latest single from Destroy Boys, “Honey I’m Home” was released last month and is quite appropriate for the recent shelter-in-place that’s been in effect due to the pandemic. Described as a song about feeling trapped, as guitarist Vi Mayugba stated- “It was written at a time in my life where I felt mentally trapped on all sides. I was boxed in by everything around me. Even though there were no physical restraints keeping me from escaping my situation, I couldn’t bring myself to leave. I was able to free myself a few months back, and now the song is more of a redemption song than anything. No more bars on the window, freaky cliff metaphors, et cetera. It’s a perfect quarantine anthem, considering we are all trapped at home.” Originally from Sacramento, CA, the trio consists of lead singer Alexia Roditis, Vi Mayugba(guitar) and Narsai Malik(drums). They received early support from Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, who attended some early shows. Their first two albums, ‘Sorry, Mom'(2016) and ‘Make Room'(2018) garnered much attention and consistent growth in their sound that enabled them to tour extensively throughout the U.S. and UK with Mannequin Pussy and SWMRS.
Destroy Boys performed an acoustic version of “Honey I’m Home” and spoke with B-Sides host, Pete Mar about the evolution of the band, life in quarantine and more. Check out the interview:
