Black Honey are mixing things up with their brand new track ‘Bad Friends’

Their latest single is a stylistic shift from the buzzy four piece.
We think we know where you are with a band, Dear Reader, and then they take a stylistic shift that leaves us grasping at thin air.

That’s what Black Honey have done with their brand new track, ‘Bad Friends’. While it still packs so many of the traits that we’d associate with the four piece – a serving of film noir intensity, that cinematic scale – in others it’s something completely new.

Shinier, more polished, slicker – call it what you will, it’s a new chapter for the band as they head towards their debut album.

You can check out ‘Bad Friends’ below.

It’s a change Black Honey told us would be coming at the turn of the year.

“I love the recordings we’ve done, I feel like I’m really coming into my own with a new direction concerning hip-hop drums,” Izzy told Dork, citing Canadian documentary ‘Hip-Hop Evolution’ as one particular influence. “We’ll always be a rock band at heart, but I think with the discoveries that have really inspired me, they’ve been much more crossover.”

“We’re still the same band – but I’ve been getting into really experimental sounds and beats, looking at different genres and finding something that feels like more of a hybrid than just linear rock music.”

‘Bad Friends’ comes just before the band’s latest UK tour, which starts out in Hull on the 9th May. They’ll go on to hit up Stoke, Sheffield, Cardiff, and Oxford, before winding up in Portsmouth on the 15th:


09 HULL The Welly

10 STOKE Sugarmill

11 SHEFFIELD The Leadmill

13 CARDIFF The Globe

14 OXFORD O2 Academy 2

15 PORTSMOUTH Wedgewood Rooms

The band are also playing loads of festivals over the summer, including Truck, alongside Friendly Fires, George Ezra, Blaenavon, Fickle Friends, Marika Hackman, Drenge, Peace and loads more.
