Wildcard (week 2):
Black Honey – Believer

Brighton 4-piece Black Honey go from strength to strength. I described their recent single Beaches as โ€˜their finest momentโ€™, but this new one is even better. Itโ€™s the kind of track words like โ€˜stomperโ€™ and โ€˜belterโ€™ were invented for. Will it be a hit? Probably not, but who cares?

Yet, Believer is an earwormy, foot-stomping track, with echoes of Primal Scream in it. Not in the least because of the trumpets and bar piano that spice it up. Lyrically, itโ€™s a rather spicey cut as well. Talking about the track, singer Izzy B. Phillips explains: โ€œBeliever is a song to accompany your existential crisis. I wanted a religious satire that was eye rolling at all the patriarchal nonsense of spiritual sense of self. I wanna believe in me, the outsider and the underdog. Itโ€™s like coming of age, coming out and coming up.โ€

The single is the fourth taste off Black Honeyโ€™s sophomore album Written And Directed, set for release on 19 March. The record, which follows their self-titled debut album, was written in 2019 and recorded in between the bandโ€™s tour commitments.

Black Honeyโ€™s Believer is the new Carte Blanche Music Wildcard, which means itโ€™ll feature here prominently for a whole week.
