The iconic Black Honey have returned with a brand new single fresh from their upcoming album. Bad Friends, a track entailing emotions of angst, shows a refreshing new direction for the band. Subtly, the tremendous track shows hints of hip-hop influence.
The track still remains to the Honey’s cinematic roots. Still remains to hold the band’s unique & powerful sound. Bad Friends is empowering, it radiates bad bitch vibes. Explosions of heavy guitar riffs juxtapose the sudden cut to Izzy’s soft angelic vocals.
We were briefly able to catch up with the band to ask a couple questions about the new track:
What was the main inspiration/ cause for you to write bad friends?
“It was from being in a hypocritical headspace between fucked up relationships with the wrong people and at the same time craving only for something I could feel. Musically it’s kinda our Frankenstein’s monster”
What was the process behind writing the single?
“It’s an open journal portrait poem I wrote after being read to in the bath.”
