Rock ‘n’ roll cool shot through with pop sensibility.

Black Honey are back, honey (and no, we won’t apologise for the pun). It feels like we’ve been waiting forever for a debut from the Brighton band, but new track ‘Dig’ is ample proof that the thumb-twiddling is going to be worthwhile.

‘Dig’ is slow-paced and silky smooth, with Izzy’s vocal refrain “You’ve gotta dig it up, dig it up” drifting lazily through the audio equivalent of a smoke-filled room. The classic Black Honey marriage of rock ‘n’ roll cool shot through with pop sensibility is on display as always, but here the energy is held in check, bubbling beneath the surface, yet still ever-present. ‘Dig’ ticks all the boxes, and does so in a way that the band haven’t tried before, or at least never to this extent.

A Black Honey track being great isn’t exactly a surprise, but it’s heartening to know that they’re capable of banger after banger. With their current track record, that long-awaited debut looks likely to blow our heads clean off. Jake Hawkes

Kim Petras is a banger machine. ‘Do Me’, ‘Heart To Break’, ‘Feeling of Falling’, ‘I Don’t Want It At All’ - it’s just pop hit after pop hit. "I feel real confidence now," she explains, "and that’s really amazing."
