He must have only...

Royal Honey Offers Up A Delicious Treat With “Sweet Heat”

A pandemic-induced shutdown has seemingly only emboldened and sharpened Royal Honey, a Pittsburgh act that has been making tasty cocktails out of equal parts glam and punk for several years now, their months-and-months-long quarantine resulting in a rather succulent sophomore effort called Sweet Heat that evokes good times, boozy vibes, and smoky little venues. Opener “Cut N Run” gets the dice rolling and the glitter flying with a spiked fruit punch that conjures UFO and...
