In 2014 Black Honey did not quite achieve the admittedly formidable task of transferring their monstrous live intensity onto record with their self-titled debut EP. However since then they’ve hurdled that obstacle with ease via a series of flawless singles, culminating in the instant anthem ‘Corrine‘.
Following such an impressive back catalogue meant a heavy weight of expectation hung over ‘All My Pride’, the first glimpse of upcoming EP Headspin– a weight immediately dispelled at the first thrashing chord. Frontwoman Izzy B Phillips’ vocals dominate the verses over a throb of bass, she’s a hugely commanding presence- even when singing about betrayal and humiliation she is never anything but enthrallingly powerful. A blazing chorus of “All my scars will heal in time, now he’s gone with all my pride” , an ever forceful rhythm section, the odd tremor of their trademark spaghetti western guitars; ‘All My Pride’ is a mission statement, a smack around the face and a guarantee that their new material will continue to impress.
