[PREVIEW] CHECK OUT BLACK HONEY & GLEAM AT UCA EPSOM

Black Honey

The Brighton based Black Honey have created a certain enigma and allure around their identity, after originally only accompanying their online tracks with elusive 1950s TV screens as artwork. As one of the most in-demand bands of festival bills this summer, from The Great Escape and Kendal Calling to Reading & Leeds, their mystery is becoming unraveled.

The 60s-esque garage rock duo mix the sweet with the sour, on Americana enthused surf-rock tracks with a bite. Described previously as the ‘gangsta Nancy Sinatra’ Black Honey’s bold voiced lead singer Izzy Bee struts a seductive-pop prowess.

The group, consisting of the former members of noise-pop band Kill Moon, with an additional member, packs revitalizing energy in their leading track ‘Madonna’. Sauntering guitars engulf Bee’s prowling attitude-filled vocals, which dare to be crude, ‘Tell me how you sleep, I’ll drag you back from every dream… I know just what you did and when you pulled out did you think of me?

Check out their latest track Madonna:

 

Gleamgleam

Blinking out from beneath an appeasing sound of 90s fuzz, raise the Birmingham shoe gazers Gleam. Despite having only performed their first gig back in February, the guitar hazy four-piece are already on their rise to recognition.

Bringing the energy of 2015 to sounds galvanized by the likes of Stereophonics and Manic Street Preachers, ‘Isn’t Real’ demonstrates a band on their way to fuzzy indie-pop greatness.
