A whole bunch of amazing new bands just felt the heat go up. Watch them burn.

Occasionally a band makes a step up. A move that doesn’t just change their own standing, but threatens to throw a lit match into the flammable pool of their peers too.

It’s unlikely that ‘Hello Today’ will be the track the talking heads are crediting with some seismic cultural change twenty years from now, but it packs enough swagger that it might as well be. From the opening beat it’s that stratospheric makeover at the start of act three in a teen movie. We knew it was coming, but when Black Honey show us what they’ve got, our eyes are on nobody else.

The occasional slip into French, the sassy-as-fuck drop into the chorus - a whole bunch of amazing new bands just felt the heat go up. Watch them burn.

Give all this a try
