Yesterday dream pop quartet Black Honey released their new single ‘Midnight’, the third taken from their highly anticipated upcoming self-titled album.
‘Midnight’ follows on from May’s ‘Bad Friends’ and June’s ‘I Only Hurt The Ones I Love’. In ‘Midnight’, sassy verses are met with falsetto choruses, alienating electric guitar solos and rumbling basslines that shake you to the core, making this one of their strongest releases over their four years as a band. It strays from their usual eerie shoegaze sound heard in their previous singles, feeling more like grunge plus electropop then times by disco. While ‘Bad Friends’ has a more mellowed drum and bass vibe with fast-paced percussion and ‘I Only Hurt The Ones I Love’ is more indie-grunge, this track is more of a stomping dance ballad.
Black Honey’s debut EP Headspin was released in April 2016, and was met with positive responses. DIY said “Each song could be a separate scene in the movie of their dreams, where Johnny Depp and Uma Thurman go on an American road trip slash killing spree.”, while The Indiependent added “Treat each track as an insight into this enigma and you have probably found your new favourite band.”
The album is due for release on 21st September, and you can preorder it here.
