HONNE were another band that caught the attention of critics at Eurosonic this year, not surprising as their conceptual sounds runs smoothly throughout their debut album.  Not the best track on the album but as a fan of consistency it gets the thumbs up.

‘Good Together’ comes off their upcoming album “Warm On A Cold Night” out tomorrow.
