Black Honey | Roundhouse Rising Festival 2016

The Roundhouse Rising Festival continues with Black Honey headlining the Saturday night with a sold out show, with support from Kurb and Hannah Lou Clark. 

 

Black Honey are the fastest rising new indie-rock band. Recently named our 'Artist of The Week,' it was great to see them live at last! Lead singer Izzy is someone you can't take your eyes off of whilst performing. She's got such expression and style and a cool personality, and more than anything, an amazing voice! Her smooth vocals fit surprisingly well in the heavy guitars and rock that accompanies her, so they really do stand out as a band. Their favourite song of mine 'Corinne' by far! 

 

Hannah Lou Clark took to the stage before, just a voice and an electric guitar and a whole lot of dry ice. It's cool to see a solo singer songwriter with an electric guitar, used for ballady songs -  it's definitely really creative. 

 

And of course, 4 piece Kurb opened this Saturday night at Roundhouse Rising Festival. These guys had a really lively, happy set, with vibrant colours on stage and a great chemistry between the band! 

  

Simultaneously, the Saturday of the Roundhouse Rising Festival saw Afrikan Boy headlining Torquil's Bar - another performance space within the Roundhouse - as well as performances around the building from the Roundhouse's music and audio collectives, bands Velcrolove and Molasses, as well as a very special emerging artist stage (right), which showcased all the best and brightest budding talent from the studios. The amazing studios that the Roundhouse fully revolves around! 

 

SO if you missed out on Radiohead tickets, that's ok, because you can just join in with the festival, and come tonight to see Kuenta i Tambu make you sweat on a Sunday night - I guarantee you can't stop dancing when you are in their gigs. Even if you're sober.
