The song “Black Honey” by Thrice was released in May 2016 and is the seventh track from their new album To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere. It features Teppei Teranishi’s guitar riff and Dustin Kensrue’s calculated vocals that create a pulsating energy. The song is a perfect example of the band’s alt rock approach to music.
It’s a political and poignant song that takes listeners on an unforgettable journey. The lyrics in this track revolve around a concept of power-hungry behaviors that negatively affect the lives of people. The song is a reassurance that, even in the midst of these destructive cycles, there’s still an internal motivation to change and break free from the cycle.
Thrice (Teppei Teranishi and Dustin Kensrue) formed in 1998 and has since come a long way as a band with a wide range of musical explorations. Their versatile style spans a variety of genres including post-hardcore, alternative rock, emo, and art rock.
In the past, the band has been known for its hard and fast music that carries prominent distorted guitar lines and complex time signatures. In addition, it focuses on the use of electronic elements and keyboards to enhance its overall sound.
The group’s newest album To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nothing, their first since they returned after their hiatus in 2015, explores themes of compassion and empathy that can be difficult to understand in today’s world. The album contains a number of songs that are meant to highlight the important things in life, such as love and family.
