BLACK HONEY – A FISTFUL OF PEACHES’ ALBUM REVIEW
Black Honey come out of the traps early on their third studio album, ‘A Fistful of Peaches’. Yes, ‘Charlie Bronson’ is the punch in the face needed to grab your attention and captures the band taking the gloves off!
The band have always been unashamed to be just who they are and that has often made them a tricky band to pigeonhole. Those that need to label things may struggle, but realistically the band’s crossover appeal is enormous and the simple undeniable fact is that they have now delivered three sublime records of infectious music.

Yes, ‘A Fistful of Peaches’ may have a lot to live up to following the quality of its predecessors, but it easily handles that pressure. The likes of ‘Heavy’, ‘Up Against It’, ‘Out of My Mind’ and ‘OK’ all sound absolutely massive and you feel that every song brings something special to this album.
This may be the most honest reflection of Black Honey as a band thus far as the group pour their hearts into their art. Each element of their sound is turned up and the results are magnificent. Whilst they’ve always demonstrated this quality, the strongest achievement on this album is the mix of relatability with aspiration.
‘A Fistful of Peaches’ is both vulnerable and ferocious in equal measures as singer Izzy Phillips is able make you feel a full palate of emotions; ultimately though Phillips and co are simply able to empower you through their reflective, decisive and uplifting collection of soaring tracks.
