After a joyous China debut last year, HONNE are back for a three-city China tour! HONNE are the soundtrack to our digital intimacies, our urban love lives in the 21st century. Their smooth electronic-soul is a widescreen take on modern heartbreak and timeless heartache.
‘Warm on a Cold Night'. 'Good Together’. ‘Day One’. Their smash-hit singles have won them a massive global following, and their debut album was a captivating record that flirted with funk and shone in its quieter moments. They’ve just released an irresistibly infectious sophomore album, and theirs is a blissful, swooning live show perfected over the last half-decade. Shanghai, Chengdu and Beijing this time, and we can’t wait to share it all with you.
HONNE are singer Andy and multi-instrumentalist James, who first bonded over their shared upbringing in South-West England; followed by 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 (本音, a Japanese phrase meaning ‘true feelings’), the boys knew it was theirs. The first song HONNE ever finished, 'Warm On A Cold Night', also served as the title for 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.
For their next move, they focused on themselves. Placing a microscope to their own lives – the jet-setting highs and lows of being in a band, the relationships they tried to hold up back home – HONNE’s second album is a touching, personal record with its own universal appeal. 'Love Me / Love Me Not' cemented their reputation as one of music’s most spellbinding propositions. Every peak, HONNE sing, means a challenge is round the corner; and equally: whenever life throws everything at once, better times are ahead.
This is one of those. Warm on 3 cool spring nights.
