Honne

Honne

Honne is soulful electronic duo Andy (on vocals) and James (on production), who met on the first day of University in London.

The band-name Honne is a Japanese word with no Western equivalent for ‘true feelings’. Similar to Banks in their earthy tones and honest lyrics, Honne blends nocturnal R&B with a sensual sadness.

‘The Night’ has partnered the release of ‘All in The Value’ on 24 November 24 via Super Recordings (AlunaGeorge, Bondax). Listen below.

Sounds like: Harts, The Macabees, Frank Ocean, Jams Blake, Hall & Oates, Years & Years, Banks, Jamie Woon, Jamie XX, The Weeknd, SOHN, Until The Ribbon Breaks

Young & Sick – Heartache Fetish

Young & Sick

Young & Sick

There has been a recent change in music direction to more R&B inspired synth pop. Bang on trend (one wouldn’t expect anything less from a fashionista) is Young & Sick; the Los Angeles based music and art project of Dutch Nick Van Hofwegen.

The man is just a bit talented. He has a clothing line and has also created pieces of artwork for bands including Foster The People and Mikky Ekko.

The upbeat and seductive ‘Heartache Fetish’ is layered with soulful grooves and a twinkling chorus. The track is taken from his self-entitled debut album which is out now via Harvest Records.

Sounds like: SOHN, Banks, Years & Years, Two Door Cinema Club, Frank Ocean, The Weeknd, Night Panther
