Boomkat Product Review:
The enigmatic Honour teases their phenomenal upcoming album for PAN 'Àlàáfía' with 'U&Me (decemberseventeen), a garbled, psychedelic cut peppered with loping beats, gunshots and brittle piano phrases. Needless to say, fans of Space Afrika, Klein and Dean Blunt, avoid at yr peril.
Honour had us frothing at the mouth earlier this year with the pair of 'HBK' mixtapes, offering us a sprawling, fallacious entry point into their world of sonic contradictions. 'U&Me (decemberseventeen)' provides a little more context, roughly fabricating a collapsible rhythm that sounds as if it could disintegrate at any moment, looping fragments of guitar and voice against bouncy kicks and trapdoor slams. A spinback launches a de-facto upper-register chorus that's punctuated with off-kilter clicks, gunshots and jazzy rushes - it's all the prompting you'll need to start diving into everything in the small but perfectly formed Honour catalogue.
