I was feeling the Wolf Alice yesterday and maybe you were too…so here is another female driven rocker out of the UK called Black Honey.
The rockers are from Brighton. I always seem to be getting emails from bands out of Brighton…is that a hip part of England? It’s on the ocean, all cities on the ocean are hip.
The song is called “Madonna.” Part of a double a-side they are releasing April 6th.
Big, arena filling, guitar rock from Bridges. The British band is from Bristol. The band reminds me of Kings of Leon. Has a bit of lazy swagger early on the cut “BFF” before tightening the focus and taking off with a soaring chorus.
“work it out, you’ve always been best friends.”
Touching sentiment, let’s hit play.
Bloody hell, Colleen Green is perfect.
Fuzzy, buzzed grungy power pop.
I read the pitchfork review of her third album, I Want to Grow Up, and downloaded it. Opening cut, “I Want to Grow Up” is a cool song. After that, the other nine songs just drift on by.
I wish Colleen would find a time-machine and go back to 1999 and be my friend.
Colleen Green is the 30-year-old and no band. Just her, guitar, drum machine. I’d imagine like, a fuzz pedal maybe.
Talking to LA Weekly, Green says her new record “(is) a culmination of things I’ve been thinking about for the past five years. It’s about disease, health and being able to move on from things that are devastating in your life.”
She talks about the trappings of getting a bunch of buzz around her art, “What if you become an asshole? It’s a scary thought.”
No way man. (fuck, I don’t know, maybe? I’ve never met her)
I’m pulling out threads of Weezer if they were fronted by a woman. My friend Jenn hears classic Veruca Slat.
Go with yourself.
