Honne might hail originally from the British Isles’ sleepy south west but you wouldn’t know it from the lusty, late night, urbanite feel of ‘Warm On A Cold Night’. The latest release from electronic imprint Super Recordings, responsible for early singles from likes of AlunaGeorge and Bondax, this debut single sees the pair – identified in their press release as Andy and James, two music teachers from Somerset and Wiltshire via Bow – pit fizzing James Blake electronics against Frank Ocean style croons honey-dipped in soul.
Threaded with FM radio chatter and seductive R&B guitars, it’s an emphatic statement of things to come from the duo, whose first ever live shows are soon to be announced. “Like a rabbit in headlights,” sings its slinking verse, “they’re stunned by all your charm.” That we are, Honne. ‘Warm On A Cold Night’ is released on September 1 but you can listen exclusively below right now.
