Black Honey : Up Against It

If you think bands are getting younger then Black Honey’s new video for their latest release from their forthcoming album A Fistful of Peaches may possibly endorse that view. But don’t worry the Brighton four piece aren’t experiencing a collective  Curious Case of the Benjamin Buttons, rather it’s a partial representation of what the song “Up Against It” means to Black Honey’s Izzy Phillips who also directed the video. 

The track is an “open letter” to “her younger self” and “And to every young discriminated and marginalised person out there” she explains  “I want so bad to give them an anthem that was instead of “fuck the world” would give them a screaming discovery of new found kindness towards themselves. Troubled young people give themselves the hardest time of all. I want to tell them that you are hurting and things are harder than you ever thought they could be, but all you have to do is show up for yourself every day. Things aren’t always going to go to plan but I know that future you is fucking proud of who you are now. And you will look back on yourself with huge admiration. Give yourself a break kid, you were up against it.”
