Stereo Honey release stunning new track What Makes A Man

One of the most thoughtful and insightful artists to emerge through last year was London based Stereo Honey. In particular, two of their songs on their wonderful Monuments EP offered deep food for thought as The Bay offered a moving and floating memory of the 21 Morecambe Bay Chinese immigrant cockle pickles who died on […]
