Amon Tobin’s Only Child Tyrant Video Premiere for “Honeycup Troll” Out Now!
OFFICIAL VIDEO RELEASE
RELEASE DATE: Tuesday 23rd August 2022
“HoneyCup Troll” is both a romp through ragged 90’s rock through an electronic music lens and an acidic love letter to internet trolls, with all the bratty confrontation required to fuel the fires.
“It’s the band I imagined when I wrote the song,” says Amon.
ABOUT ONLY CHILD TYRANT
When Nomark released the debut Only Child Tyrant album Time to Run in 2019, Amon’s adventure into rock music at first seemed surprising, but long time followers of Tobin’s work were able to join the dots between the album’s pounding, explosive energy and earlier releases. District Geek described it thusly, “this album is a worthy successor to Chaos Theory, it is once again a sensational journey.” A mix of alt-rock and surf rock electronica, the album was described as “an eye-opening piece of art.” (EDM.com) and the LA Times concluded Time to Run “rocks. Like, turn-it-up-to-11 rocks.”
Press for Only Child Tyrant
“Time To Run is a refreshing clash of styles within electronic music, and everyone from fans of Tool to Trentemoller may find themselves with the record on repeat. It’s an eye-opening piece of art.” – EDM.com
‘”Solid Gray Zebra” opens with what sounds like the hum of a shorted-out guitar cord, pushes forth a touch of distortion and rolls into a driving bass pattern that sounds ripped from an early Black Flag record. “Long Down” opens with a slow, twang-bar-accented guitar riff that echoes through Duane Eddy-style strums… “Time to Run” rocks. Like, turn-it-up-to-11 rocks.’ – LA TIMES
“It’s brilliantly bonkers… the wonderfully wonky riff of “Monkey Box” opens proceedings… “Eight Bit Psyche” sounds like Augustus Pablo and The Tornados jamming in some faraway corner of the stratosphere.” – Electronic Sound Magazine
