Playlist: What Black Honey Are Listening To

20th May 2016 | Music

Just off from supporting Catfish and the Bottlemen on their recent sold-out UK tour, Black Honey are a name not to be passed over in the music industry right now.

Put Lana Del Rey in an indie-rock band, and you have the basis for Black Honey. Lead vocalist Izzy Baxter performs with that brand of drifting vocals mixed with ultimate girl power. However, the band don't let you stay comfortable. Even within hit single Corrine, as soon as you get comfortable the instruments come in and you're suddenly in a rock concert.

Hailing from Brighton, they're refusing to stay quiet. New EP Headspin (which was also just released on vinyl) has garnered many positive reviews and, following their acclaimed support slot with Catfish, they have a busy summer ahead of them - including performances at The Great Escape Festival and Summer Sonic in Tokyo.

James Gilmore is interviewing Izzy (vocals, guitar) and Chris Ostler (guitar) from Black Honey on Sunday 22nd May 2016, but before then here are some of the sounds that they're listening to right now.

Trouble - Cage The Elephant


Summer Wine - Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazlewood


Brimful of Asha (Norman Cook Remix) - Cornershop


Tomorrow Never Knows - The Beatles

Those are some great sounds! Don't miss our interview with Black Honey this Sunday 22nd May at 5.30pm (UK time) only on W!ZARD Radio Station.

Belfast duo New Portals are made up of husband-wife team Michael and Ruth Aicken (they're also the lead members in folk/pop band The Jepettos).

Producing electro-pop music comparable to that of Oh Wonder, it was their single Do It Right that started to get people talking about them. Since then, following in the footsteps of Oh Wonder, they have been trying to release new music as often as possible through Sound Cloud and YouTube.

Following the success of Do It Right they have also released singles Groove Boy and Skyline, all of which have received widespread support, including on W!ZARD Radio Station.
