“My new favourite band out of the UK. With Snub they explore new sounds and sonics that are sure to please your ears!” - Matt Sorum, Guns N’Roses, The Cult, Velvet Revolver
"Rooted in the best of Manchester’s guitar greats, drenched in reverb and punching through like Sam Fender." - Chris Hawkins, BBC 6 Music
A global pandemic might not be the best time for a new band to try and get off the ground, but Manchester four-piece Sour Honey aren't just any band. Formed from the ashes of two other Manchester bands, Young Monarch and Cosmo Calling, Sour Honey dropped their debut single ‘Dennis’ just days before the UK’s first lockdown was announced. It turned the heads of industry tastemakers from the word go, thanks to its combination of heady shoegaze and ‘90s college rock.
Likened to Sam Fender and War On Drugs, Sour Honey's lyrics have tones of youth-filled adventure. This tone enters and leaves with pace, menace and oddball quirkiness in equal measure, reminiscent of 60’s garage rock nostalgia.
Sour Honey now look to break through their next glass ceiling with their debut EP ‘Backroom’, a collection of songs that display the band’s killer instinct for refreshing hooks. Sour Honey are ready to embark on their journey to the peak of British Indie.
