New Music Of The Day: Black Honey ‘Hello Today’ (Video)

Following last night’s triumphant display at London’s Lexington, one of 2016’s best new bands Black Honey have dropped a new video for their latest single ‘Hello Today’.

Though they told NME last year that they’re “quintessentially a British rock band”, their debut video most definitely takes its cues from the barren, gun-slinging allure of Americana. Directed by Nadia Lee Cohen, the video sees frontwoman Izzy B Phillips take on a fly-infested heart (which doubles as a pesky omen) in the video which was shot in Joshua Tree, California. Speaking to Nylon, Phillips explained the concept of the video for ‘Hello Today’:

“It’s about a girl who is trying to put her demons behind her. She is followed by an omen that is symbolized by an ever-present human heart. The omen drives her to delirium, and in an attempt to escape her past, she drives into the desert to bury the heart before the sun sets.”
