HONNE

C’est le label Super Recordings, grand ausculteur de la nuit londonienne et de ses spasmes (on lui doit notamment AlunaGeorge) qui a déniché ce duo aux allures de gravure de mode pour boutique très chère de l’East End londonien (peut-être un magasin de vélos pliants, ou de sweat-shirts en laine de rat musqué).

Mais qu’importe le flacon : il y a ici ivresse, dans cette soul moderne et capiteuse, qui rappelle Franck Ocean dans ses moments les plus vulnérables. Musique de nuit, qui sent le sexe et le bourbon, introduite – jusqu’au cliché – par la voix profonde d’un DJ américain. Après lui, le déluge sous les draps de soie. JD Beauvallet – ©Les Inrocks

HONNE have announced details of second album ‘Love Me / Love Me Not’, which will be released on August 24th.

HONNE’s hugely-accomplished second album, ‘Love Me / Love Me Not’, captures the duality of life’s ups and downs, and the balancing act of navigating between two states at once: whether it’s the honeymoon period high of a relationship, the frustration of a long-distance separation or the fear of losing someone close, HONNE’s lyrics dial in at the reality of most people’s lives. Appropriately, the band have already built themselves a truly global audience, with over half a billion streams, sold-out tours, and several surprises along the way (see a triple-platinum album in South Korea). Theirs is a truly modern success story which is pushed further still in the split rollout of second album ‘Love Me / Love Me Not’ – a record which acknowledges that for every peak, a challenge is round the corner, and equally that whenever life overwhelms you, better times are ahead.
