AMFM Magazine caught up with super hot band HONNE after their show at Stubbs on the last day of SXSW 2016. As relative newcomers they manage to regularly sell out venues, with their signature sound dubbed “futuristic soul destined to re-invent babymaking music” by The Telegraph.
This British Electronic-Soul duo formed in 2014 in Bow, London, consisting of James (Producer) and Andy (Singer/Producer) who both write, record and produce the music. Andy and James met while at university and started making music together under the name of HONNE – a Japanese word (本音) meaning ‘true feelings’ – in late 2014. The band released their debut single ‘Warm On A Cold Night’ in September 2014 via Super Recordings, the label that launched AlunaGeorge and Bondax. They followed up with their second EP ‘All In The Value’, also released on Super Recordings, in November 2014, and made their live debut at the Sebright Arms on the same day. In 2015 they released their third EP, ‘Coastal Love’, on their own imprint Tatemae Recordings.
