On what was possibly the coldest, wettest, windiest night since I arrived in Liverpool in September, I set off with eager anticipation to Olympia with my two best friends full of excitement to see Blossoms for the second time knowing that it was going to be a gig to remember. I can only say that it surpassed all my expectations – what an amazing night!
Having put teasers on social media for the last couple of weeks, Brighton 4 piece psych-rock band, Black Honey have today finally dropped their new single, Somebody Better. It’s a touch of Americana with a memorable infectious chorus – “I guess I’ll learn to be somebody better, I won’t get burned, I’ll stay here forever” -and a slightly retro twisted 50’s guitar sound complimenting Izzy B Phillips’ Lana del Ray meets Debbie Harry style vocals, this song conjures up images of Thelma and Louise style road tripping along Route 66 in a pink Cadillac convertible wearing heart-shaped shades with the wind in your hair. It’s a refreshingly summery antidote to a dull Liverpool afternoon, and I loved it.
