If “Sweet Honey” were a scene in a movie from the 70’s it would be when the boy protagonist underdog who you’ve been cheering for all film finally gains the courage to ask his high school heartthrob to dance and things heat up fast. “Sweet Honey” by Michael Barrow & the Tourists is an adorable tune that is sure to lift your spirits regardless of where they’re at currently.
Instrumentally the guitarists performance really stands out with their skillful mastery that doesn’t overshadow the well choreographed hits by the whole band. There must be something special in the water of Provo, UT for such talented groups to keep forming there. “Sweet Honey” conjures imagery of sweethearts and dancing and feelings of nostalgia for late nights in diners during a time I wasn’t alive for.
