Black Honey know how to write a great tune don’t they? There’s a real scuzzy basement pop sound to their new song Corrine. With a chorus of “Corrine come back to me, ‘ cos it’s 6 in the morning and we’re always playing make believe,” gleefully leaping out with a huge ball grabbing melody and torch song emotion it thrusts twangy guitars and a hint of the 1960’s vintage into your ears with vigour, and then some.
Is anyone still doing the guitar music is dead argument? Well if they are here's the last nail in that particular coffin. How can it be dead when you’ve got bands as viscerally thrilling as Black Honey making music seem so alive? It’s why, when Breaking More Waves was asked to personally select a number of bands and musicians for the bill of this year’s Dials Festival in Southsea, Black Honey was top of our list. Come and see them rock the socks off Portsmouth’s latest new music event as the headline the Edge of the Wedge stage on October 3rd alongside the likes of Hooton Tennis Club, Fickle Friends, Kagoule, Alice Jemima and Chloe Black. Tickets are available on this link here.
