FRIDAY 10th SEP '21
Friday 10th September
Heroes and villains. Bad-ass bitches and dead-end deserters. Love, lust, hate and all that's in between. Ever since Black Honey stomped onto the scene in a head-rush of grit and glitter, the Brighton quartet have set about building their own incendiary, inclusive universe from the inside out.
Since releasing their debut EP back in 2014, they've travelled the world, released a Top 10 album, graced the cover of the NME and become the faces and soundtrack of Roberto Cavalli's Milan Fashion Week show! Without compromising a shred of the wild, wicked vision they first set out with they have smashed Glastonbury and supported Queens of the Stone Age on tour combining escapism and realism – providing a technicolour dream world to dive into, whilst tackling the everyday issues of being a young woman - something that has fuelled the band's fire. It's a duality that's earned the singer an increasingly loyal tribe of fans, who've found something in her message of “owning your weird” to hold close; slide into the band's Instagram DMs and you'll find endless examples of fan art, poetry, and testimonies to the importance of Black Honey's outlook, that prove how beloved a voice they've become. “There was a girl that said to me the other day that I make her feel that it's OK to be herself, and now she's learned to celebrate it and she listens to our songs to make her feel more invincible. “I couldn't ask for anything more,” says singer Izzy Phillips. “If I can make one person feel the way that Kurt Cobain made me feel when I was 15, then I've done my job. Mike from Royal Blood said that our fans are really cult-y, which sounds pretty good to me. We've got a cult on the go!”
