HONNE ‘Coastal Love’
Sounding a bit like P A N A M A or Chet Faker & Flume, HONNE – a British duo who even look remarkably similar to Faker and Flume – have released the lead single from their upcoming four track EP of the same name, Coastal Love.
With guest vocals from the female part of Wilsen, HONNE offer us a little slice of tropicana. ‘Coastal Love’ is about a long distance trans-atlantic relationship; having returned to the city, it’s a throwback daydream to a holiday romance that just can’t be shaken.
The song is emotive funk-pop and, whilst there’s nothing particularly challenging or experimental about it, it is certainly a well-put together track that is confident and very listenable. It’s pretty sultry, it tells a story and it sounds great. It’s R’n’B coming to you via Barbados or some other such Caribbean island.
Coastal Love EP will be released May 4th via Tatemae Records, their own imprint.
