In the wake of Lana Del Ray's Ultraviolence sending the internet into a feeding frenzy, it's proving to be a great opportunity for artists in a similar vein to get some much deserved attention. One such band is Black Honey, who dropped their new single "Sleep Forever" a few days ago.

Although the single is technically listed as a demo, it's pretty apparent that the guys have a clear idea of the sound they're trying to push with this polished release. Dakota Clayton has this whole Lana Del Ray/ Nancy Sinatra vibe and, to me at least, the track sounds like it could be a modern tribute to "My Baby Shot Me Down". Long live Black Honey if this is the kind of material they're going to be pushing.
