The track was premiered on Radio 1
After releasing their brilliant single ‘Beaches’ last month, Black Honey are back again with ‘Run For Cover’.
Frontwoman Izzy B. Phillips says the track is “about the nuances in sex. It’s fun but on a bit of a knife edge of risk and weird. Sex can be clumsy, emotional and complex. There’s so much baggage that it comes with. We wrote the song from a man’s perspective. It felt empowering to flip it to the female gaze. I think I’m exploring both power and my weakness in equal measure. We wanted it to sound manic – like Hives meets John Travolta, hips swinging. I love this song. I hope it makes women find themselves and dump their boyfriends.”
No official word on a new album but with these two singles, their “next phase” is sounding very exciting.
