Global rule and shows in space - Black Honey have it all nailed down.
To say Black Honey are having an alright time is a bit of an understatement.
“It’s a dream,” starts frontwoman Izzy B. Phillips. “Life at the moment is absolutely crazy, and it feels like we’re living some weird, really badly written film.” “Like if we tried to write a film,” offers bassist Tommy Taylor. The pair are sat in their local, sharing a vegetarian platter ahead of another hectic Great Escape weekend in their hometown, Brighton. But the band, rounded off by guitarist Chris Ostler and drummer Tom Dewhurst, are used to hectic. It’s all they’ve known for the past twelve months.
“It’s quite a lot to take in when you think how many years we’ve been locked away in a studio, writing songs, being on the dole or whatever and it’s gone from nothing to touring constantly,” explains Izzy. “Busy busy busy. It’s everything we’ve ever dreamt of but it’s so fast, you almost forget that. It’s mayhem. We’ve been to Europe like, seven times, we went to Dubai, we played Milan fashion week, we made an EP, we’ve all been doing our jobs as well.” The whirlwind has left the band feeling “like anything can happen now and we’ll be fine,” but from the off, Black Honey has felt different.
