RADSOUND // SOTW: LOVE THE JOBS YOU HATE – HONNE
Originally posted on Radsound
This week’s single comes from London duo Honne with ‘Love The Jobs You Hate’.
With the duo’s previous efforts merging electro sounds with sparkles of soulful funk, alongside mononymous James’ rich vocals, ‘Love The Jobs You Hate’ is no exception. Infusing slap bass injections with lush analogue synths and frantic snapping electronic beats, the musical background comprises of a futuristic take on the smooth sounds of late night soul crooners alongside the 80s-tinged energy of the likes of The Blow Monkeys whilst the lyrics carry a carefree position in the face of everyday pains to make for another late entry to the ultimate summer track.
With their third EP ‘Over Lover’ out on 2nd September and a UK full band tour in October to accompany the release, following festival slots all over the country and the setup of their own label imprint Tatemae Recordings, Honne seem set to continue steadily rising into the footsteps of ex-labelmates Bondax and AlunaGeorge, and with tracks like this, rightly so.
