“She’s still one of my favourite characters of all time”
Honeyblood have shared their visceral and nostalgic cover of Splendora’s ‘You’re Standing On My Neck’ – the classic theme song to Daria. Hear it exclusively on NME first below.
The track was produced by Honeyblood’s Stina Tweeddale, and was recorded as a labour of love in tribute to the dry-witted, cult cartoon icon.
“I was obsessed with Daria as a kid,” Stina told NME. “She’s still one of my favourite characters of all time. We used to use the original Splendora version as our intro music to come onstage to, so a cover version was only a matter of time!”
To mark the release, here’s Stina herself re-imagined as a character in the show for the artwork:
In more good news for Daria fans, MTV has confirmed that the misanthropic teenager will be returning – after the series was recommissioned for both another TV season and a movie.
Honeyblood meanwhile, are gearing up to head out on their Autumn UK tour in support of their third album ‘In Plain Sight‘ and recent one-off single ‘Bubble Gun‘.
