Review: Black Honey at The Wedgewood Rooms

Black Honey, one of the UK’s most notoriously good upcoming live bands, recently finished their first UK headline tour of the year with a high-octane performance at The Wedgewood Rooms.

An indie rock band led by Izzy Baxter, Black Honey is an exciting new sound, featuring vocals similar to Lana Del Rey. Following some of the coolest warm-up acts I’ve seen for a while, the much-anticipated band finally took to the stage. They kept the Portsmouth crowd happy playing old favourites ‘Corrine’ and ‘All My Pride’, whilst showcasing some brand new music and some incredibly cool outfits as well.

The Brighton four-piece are on the road to success after ending 2017 on a high, supporting long-term friends Royal Blood on their massive UK arena tour, playing to their biggest crowds to date. Since then, they’ve been holed up in their studio putting the finishing touches on their hotly anticipated debut album – releasing a teaser track ‘Dig’ earlier this year.

Never ones to sit still, this month they returned to the road with a run of headline dates across the UK, playing some new cities they had yet to grace, including Portsmouth.

Whilst their May tour might be over, you can still catch Black Honey at several festivals this summer, including Finsbury Park, Truck Festival and Rize. They have recently announced their biggest UK tour to date, starting in October. While Portsmouth doesn’t feature on the line-up, after attracting such a big and enthusiastic crowd at the Wedgewood Rooms, hopefully it won’t be long until they’re back in our favourite city.
