Daisy Jones the Six Honeycomb

Daisy Jones & the Six Display Insecurity in “Look at Us Now”

Last Friday, Prime Video released the second single to promote its upcoming series Daisy Jones & the Six, “Look At Us Now (Honeycomb).” The show follows the rise and fall of a fictional 1970s rock band and revolves around the title character Daisy Jones, played by Riley Keough, and her whirlwind romance with bandmate Billy Dunne, played by Sam Claflin. The first three episodes of Daisy Jones & the Six will be available on March 3.

As the character Karen Sirko — played by Suki Waterhouse in the show — states in the book, “‘Honeycomb’ [is] a song about insecurity.” The song starts with the lyrics “I don’t know who I am / Baby, baby, baby / Do you know who you are?” which display Billy’s uncertainty regarding his life choices. In the bridge, the constant repetition of “How did we get here? How do we get out?” and “this thing we’ve been doing ain’t working out” evokes a complicated relationship that might not end well. Similarly, the lyrics “if this was your plan, tell me why you’ve been crying in the dark” imply an affair that went sideways.

In the book, Billy wrote “Honeycomb” as a love song and a promise to his wife, Camila Dunne — portrayed by Camila Morrone in the series —. However, the lyrics in “Look at Us Now (Honeycomb)” are nowhere near those concepts, which could be why the title is different, too. This change also suggests that the storyline from the novel went under changes for the Prime Video adaptation. Nevertheless, the hype for the series is expanding every day.

Last Tuesday, the official trailer for the Daisy Jones & the Six adaptation was released. There, we can see more of the love triangle between Daisy, Billy, and Camila. Billy tells Daisy that “Honeycomb” is about “starting a new life. It’s about dreaming of something different.” Then, we see a montage of scenes where Camila doubts Billy’s association with Daisy, all the while “Look at Us Now” plays in the background.

Sonically, “Look At Us Now (Honeycomb)” is a peaceful track that captures ’70s rock perfectly. Riley and Sam’s voices blend harmoniously and convey the message in the best way possible. This single and the previously released “Regret Me” will be part of AURORA, an 11-track album that comes out on March 3 via Atlantic Records; you can preorder it here. Remember to listen to and watch the lyric video for “Look At Us Now (Honeycomb)” below, and don’t miss Daisy Jones & the Six on Prime Video.
