Black Honey: Black Honey

photo: Harriet Brown

English indie pop band Black Honey manage to sound slick and tough on their self-titled album. Lead singer Izzy B. Phillips sounds a bit like Wendy James (Transvision Vamp), but with the sense of humour of Mette Lindberg (The Asteroids Galaxy Tour) as an added bonus,.

Lyrically it is an education for mainstream pop fans, and production wise a guilty pleasure for the more advanced music fan. If disco-infused pop ever makes a comeback as a serious genre, the Brighton based quartet's self-titled debut album can be pinpointed as a landmark release.

Black Honey is released thru Foxfive Records.
