Black Licorice features Conner Farrell, Jason Nierenberg, Isabelle Bain, and Ryan Marshall. Their debut single “No Patients” was released in early 2020. When the COVID-19 pandemic began, the band headed to Arizona to record a series of four singles which they released throughout the period of quarantine, including “Tell It to Me” (which was also produced as a video featuring footage from Rick and Morty and the Howard Stern show), “Fun Times,” “Getting Closer,” and concluding with “Down the Drain”. “Fun Times” was featured on Spotify Brazil’s official playlist Volume Máximo.
A new single called “Coughdrops and La Croix” dropped in September 2020, with the band back in San Diego.
