Descendants of garage and noise pop in the vein of Lush, Black Honey is a high-octane indie rock band led by Izzy Baxter, a vocalist with a coaxing delivery often compared to Lana Del Rey.
The band was formed in Brighton, England with guitarist Chris Ostler, bass player Tommy Taylor, drummer Tom Dewhurst, and Baxter, who also plays guitar. The quartet created a buzz with a series of singles released on an eponymous debut EP in late 2014 by Duly Noted Records. That led to touring opportunities across the U.K. in 2015, soon followed by dates in Continental Europe and airtime on BBC Radio 1. In the meantime, the group released more catchy, stand-alone singles including the surf guitar-tinged "Madonna" and "Corrine." A much-anticipated second EP, Headspin, arrived in the spring of 2016. ~ Marcy Donelson, Rovi
