Bad Honey (Lydia Clowes & Teresa Origone) came together in London as a keyboard and vocal duo to create the sleepy lullabies and soulful sounds of Bad Honey. Influenced by a wide range of artists, from Lianne La Havas to Little Dragon to Bon Iver, their sound is a delicate and dreamy combination of pure sounding vocals with catchy synths and bouncing beats, resulting in a blend of soul, pop and lo-fi electronics.
Working with producer Count Counsellor, Bad Honey spent four days at Family Day Recordings on the small Norwegian island of Søndre Sandøy, creating the 5-track EP‘Better in Time’. Released in April 2018, the EP received a positive response with radio plays from BBC Introducing London, BBC Radio 6, Worldwide FM, Amazing Radio and support from Spotify’s New Music Friday playlists in Norway, Denmark, Finland and Iceland.
As well as selling out two self-organised release shows (in 2016 and 2018), Bad Honey has been active in the London live scene as a four piece band with performances at The Roundhouse, The Waiting Room, OMEARA, The Jazz Café as well as having played the last festival season (Cheltenham Jazz Festival and Brainchild amongst others), and having supported the likes of Little Simz, Gogo Penguin, Mamas Gun, Soweto Kinch.
