Critically-acclaimed electro-soul duo, HONNE (pronounced “HAHN”), have made their highly-anticipated return with two brand new tracks, “Day 1 ◑/Sometimes ◐”, – available now via Atlantic Records. Both songs will be featured on the duo’s forthcoming sophomore album due later this year and are now available at all DSPs and streaming services HERE.
“Day 1 ◑” and “Sometimes ◐” are an intriguing, irresistibly infectious return from HONNE. With its assured blend of soul, R&B and courteous romance, “Day 1 ◑” is “fundamentally about loyalty and being with someone right from the beginning,” says the band, “it’s the sound of a duo pushing their idiosyncratic sound forward into more confident, beat-driven territory whilst retaining a back-to-basics precision.
“Sometimes ◐,” however, reveals a darker, more self-critical side to HONNE, reflecting on all the things you often take for granted in a relationship. Both tracks take you full circle and – much like the tight-knit relationship of Andy & James themselves – are designed to work best when together.
This past year has seen HONNE hard at work on their forthcoming sophomore album and follow-up to their acclaimed debut, ‘Warm On A Cold Night’. The duo’s positive and relatable portraits of twenty-first century romance and modern city living have won them a global audience, amassing over half a billion streams worldwide. Along the way, they have sold out sizable venues across Europe, Asia (the album went triple-platinum in Korea), and the US.
Following an intimate performance at London’s Village Underground, HONNE’s blissful live show can be seen at an array of summer festivals. For more information, please visit: http://hellohonne.com/live/
