Black Honey + Demob Happy + Big Spring
Saturday 19 October 2019, 6pm - 10pm
Wild Paths Festival
Black Honey are a British four-piece indie rock band formed in Brighton, England in 2014.
'Black Honey are an illusion. Since emerging in 2014 with just a mystery phone number to their name, everything coming from the Brighton-based four-piece has been so flawless. Their videos are cinematic beauties – like the Saturday Night Fever-meets-Pulp Fiction drama of Midnight, which runs for nearly three minutes through a disco-based revenge plot before the track comes in.'
'Coming off the back of their critically acclaimed debut album, Black Honey are eager to get back out and invite people into their weird and wonderful world. Lead by Izzy B Phillips with her lovable but villainous, Milky-Bar-kid-meets-Debbie Harry persona the band have built up an incredible demand for their live shows, upping the ante with each tour. Last year ended with a packed-out headline gig at Electric Ballroom in London followed by supporting Wolf Alice at Brixton Academy. They’re heading more rural this time playing some of their favourite venues as well as brand new places and festivals in Europe. They will be performing tracks from their album which is a collage of chaos, shot straight at the heart – honest, inspiring and deeply infectious.'
Demob Happy are an English alternative rock band, formed in 2008 in Newcastle upon Tyne and now based in Brighton.
On 23 March 2018, the band released their second album Holy Doom, which was preceded by the singles Be Your Man and Loosen It
Of the back of tour support slots with the likes of Jack White and Tigercub and with an American tour lined up (supporting Band Of Skulls) later in the year, 2019 is looking exciting for Demob
Dubbed as the 'best new band in Britain' by BBC Radio 1's Dan P Carter, Big Spring are a London-based alt-rock band with a bright future...
‘Big’ is certainly an appropriate moniker for both the band and their music. Tracks like new cut ‘Cold Foot’ are engorged, swollen takes on the sonic template laid down by such 90s grunge kings as Alice In Chains and Soundgarden, the latter of who’s ‘4th Of July’ pretty overtly influenced Big Spring’s titanic ‘5th Of July’.
'Colossal 90s-tinged rock with enough of a pop sensibility to lodge itself in your skull.'
