Listening to the sounds of Honne from London you can definitely hear the Soul that influenced their music. James and Andy met at university. After having a few sessions trying out all sorts of stuff Honne was born. The name itself is a japanese word that describes the true feelings and desires of a person. In this case it also stands for finest Electro-Soul.
The duo is inspired by classical soul and already compared to names like Drake or Frank Ocean. The voice of Andy seems raw and pure and makes a great combination with the smooth lo-fi sounds. Their lyrics are simple and inspired by their real life. They claim their music to be “serious babymaking music“. So better watch out before you press play.
