HONNE

HONNE

London based electronic R&B duo HONNE release a sensual new video for their single ‘Good Together’ from their critically-acclaimed debut album ‘Warm On A Cold Night’ (available now via Atlantic Records), following a breakout festival run and sold-out shows across the US and Europe.

HONNE’s universal, positive portraits of twenty-first century romance have quickly won them a broad global audience: both parallel to – and a stark reaction against – the sometimes-brutal modern dating climate (“we were terrible at being single,” the band say now). Released this summer, ‘Warm On A Cold Night’ is a record where expressing feelings may not come naturally, but nonetheless strives for real love in the digital age.

HONNE are singer Andy and multi-instrumentalist James, who first bonded over their shared upbringing in South-West England; then, the more evocative, US West Coast grooves of their record collections, and a mutual fascination with Japan. During a midnight re-watching of ‘Lost in Translation’, it became apparent that this sense of a partner at a loose end – of wandering through a strange environment, and struggling to convey what you mean – was just as relevant to their lives off-screen. When James found the word ‘Honne’ later on (a Japanese phrase meaning ‘true feelings’), the boys knew it was theirs. The first song HONNE ever finished, ‘Warm On A Cold Night’, now titles their stunning debut album. And between the millions of stream and sell-out shows since then, the soulful duo have carved out an instantly-identifiable sound all of their own.
