The shimmery shoegaze indie-pop quartet from Brighton have proven their tenacity and determination: this summer they've played a whole host of festivals off of the back of their headline tour which concluded at the end of May.

With five singles and one EP under their belt, the band are keen faves on Spotify with over two million hits on their mesmerising and sultry single 'Madonna'.


Annoyingly cool lead-singer Izzy looks right out of a bygone-era: think Thelma and Louise amalgamated into one kick-ass lady, who happens to swing by Woodstock every year, glam-rock flares fluttering, glitter in abundance.

The rest of the band don't appear like a support group to the main lady either, but rather a fantastical compliment: the twanging surf-rock guitars and thrashing drums support Izzy's sultry voice and mesmerizing stage presence.

WHAT THREE WORDS BEST DESCRIBE THE BLACK HONEY STYLE?
Fierce. Messy. Zero-Fucks


WHAT IS A TYPICAL DAY MAKING MUSIC LIKE FOR YOU?
Really varied sometimes it's me playing guitar in my knickers to drum loops watching Wes Anderson movies. Sometimes long hours of recording sometimes structuring and rebuilding ideas in the studio with the guys.


WHO/WHAT WERE YOUR INFLUENCE AND INSPIRATIONS?
It's like we cherry picked contradicting sounds from different eras of Blondie, The Beatles, Post Punk, Warhol and pop music then stuck them together with glitter glue to make a Tarrantino movie soundtrack.


TELL US ABOUT YOUR FASHION, IZZY YOU MAKE YOUR OWN OUTFITS? WHAT IS YOUR INSPIRATION?
I like to feel like I'm a character in a movie, and after watching a lot of Ru Paul I realised that to be truly unique you kind of need to invent your own style. My sowing is a total fucking mess but that doesn't stop me from ordering my body weight of glitter trims and embroidered snakes and adding them obsessively to my Charity shop garment I own.
