Brighton’s Black Honey throw the kitchen sink at every aspect of their musical careers. If you want subtle and understated, they would politely advise you to look elsewhere (and they’d do it with immaculate production quality too). You just need to take a look at their videos, and just how well produced they are, to realise that Black Honey love to tell a story. The video for ‘Midnight’ is essentially a short film, with three minutes of narrative before the song even kicks in. That’s not to say that there’s any style over substance with this lot. They need the style to measure up to the substantial sound experience that they generate. Hannah Rooke was there to photograph it for us.
