After only forming mid-way through 2014, Black Honey have quickly become one of the most talked about guitar bands in the UK. Starting out shrouded in mystery the band let the music do the talking, there were no photos, only their TV themed artwork to accompany each track they released. Further adding to the intrigue, instead of issuing a standard press release the band invited fans to text them directly if they wanted to find out more.

After dreamy opener 'Sleep Forever', 60’s psychedelic ‘Teenager’ and grunge rock 'The Taste' the band revealed their debut EP with their final hook laden track ‘Bloodlust’ and the first photo of themselves. To celebrate the band played a sold out secret show in their hometown of Brighton. Over the next few months the band caught the attention of the NME and The Telegraph who both named them as One’s To Watch in 2015, they were also listed in Hype Machine & BBC 6Music’s Most Blogged Top 10 list also picking up radio support from Huw Stephens, BBC Introducing and XFM, most notably Dave Rowntree who played every track off their EP on his show.

"The perfect mix of sad, cinematic sophistication and wild-eyed energy that will have you craving more."
NME
"Their set seamlessly interlaces breezy pop with psychedelic rock"
