Hurrah! Mystery band Black Honey finally reveal themselves – and guess what? They look pretty much like any other regular bunch of guys and gals in a band. No deformed faces, no extra limbs, no absurdly large or small body parts (not that we can see anyway). We also get some names: Izzy Bee, Chris Ostler, Tommy Taylor & Tom Dewhurst. Plug that into Google and you’ll find out the name of Black Honey before they became Black Honey, if you’re interested in that sort of thing. (Interesting / not so interesting fact depending on your point of view: when they were that former band one of their first gigs was supporting Haim in Brighton. One of their last gigs in their previous guise was the Camden Crawl this year. We witnessed both shows - their birth and death before the reincarnation so to speak.)
Right, now we’ve got all of that cleared up, shall we get on with the music? This one gives a nod backwards, as it struts like an ostrich with a raw speaker shredding 60’s noise pop sound to it. It features on the bands untitled debut EP, which will be available as a limited edition physical run CD at their gigs, the first of which is today in their home town of Brighton at a yet to be disclosed venue. Want to go? Message them on 07578533359 for details. They also play Notting Hill Arts Club, London on November 2nd.
