Brighton indie rockers Black Honey burst out of the ether in 2014 with their squalling guitars, vivid colours and cinematic vignettes, and are arguably one of the UK’s fastest rising bands.
Their recorded material journey started in their formation year with the self-titled 4-track EP, which was followed two years later, in April 2016 by the release of the 4-track ‘Headspin’ EP. Six months later they dropped their ‘Hello Today’ single. 2017 saw the release of the ‘Somebody Better’ single. Three years in the making, they released their debut 12-track self titled album on 21st September 2018, which reached No.33 on the UK Album Chart. Their gig at Brighton’s Concorde 2 on 14th October 2018 was lauded in the press as one of the finest of the year.
Their debut platter was followed by their second long-player ‘Written & Directed’ which dropped on 19th March 2021 and went crashing into the UK Album Chart at No.7. On 17th March this year, their third album, ‘A Fistful Of Peaches’, went one better and reached No.6.
Black Honey consists of Izzy Phillips (lead vocals, guitar), Chris Ostler (vocals, guitar, synthesizers), Tommy Taylor (vocals, bass guitar) and Alex Woodward (drums) and are very much a band that are in demand. Yesterday (23rd October 2023), the outfit announced their biggest headline live shows to date!!! The first of these will be a hometown gig at the Concorde 2 on Wednesday 31st January 2024 courtesy of FORM promoters. After this this will be heading off to the Trinity in Bristol on Thursday 8th February, Beckett SU in Leeds on Friday 9th February, and O2 Kentish Town Forum in London for a Valentine’s date on Wednesday 14th February.
They will be joined on all four dates by Picture Parlour and kynsy___ as well as some special surprise after party performances including a drag queen (for the Brighton date), sword swallowing, Elvis and burlesque! They are also looking at very special DJ’s that are currently TBA and hopefully some karaoke too.
