Black Honey are taking no prisoners at Glastonbury 2017

Just because they're new to this platform doesn't mean there's a learning curve to climb.
You know Black Honey – pink flamingo, edge-of-seat chaos, ramshackle brilliance – yeah? Well, that’s not the band who show up to the John Peel stage today. Instead, this Black Honey have no time for messing around or flirting with danger. They want something, so they’re taking it. They’ve got thirty minutes to make it count and from the curtain-rise tease of ‘Madonna’, drenched in longing and wide-eyed hope, every single moment is phenomenal.

See, Black Honey have so many great songs now, they don’t have room for anything else. Jam-packed, bursting at the seams and electrifyingly versatile, they’ve slowly shifted into a force to be reckoned with, but today it shows off its true, terrifyingly huge, potential.

‘All My Pride’ rolls through with heavy grit. ‘Hello Today’ is euphoric. ‘Somebody Better’ yearns for everything and gets it. Sure, someone pulls out the guitar lead during a quiet moment of acoustic beauty between Izzy, Chris and a more than a few hundred new mates, but just because they’re new to this platform doesn’t mean there’s a learning curve to climb. From the title card to the credits roll of ‘Spinning Wheel’ – vicious, blood-soaked (literally in Izzy’s case) and defiantly wonderful – Black Honey are unstoppable.
