‘Honest’ utilises the stunning nature of Broods‘ vocal offering to lead in the narrative alongside the restrained beats and swooping pads, and build the suspense and intensity within the piece. When we arrive at the chorus, we are met with a buzzing and energised soundscape courtesy of the powerful synths striking throughout that shakes things up without overbearing the mix.
Featuring a colourful music video which stars both San Holo and Broods, the narrative of being honest when interacting with others is further translated and exemplified in such an artistic manner that gives full clarity to the viewers and listeners combined.
“Honest is a song I wrote a few years back about being honest in every aspect of your life. It delves into the idea of being as genuine as possible when you meet someone, even if nothing comes of it. I would rather be transparent from the start than create a false of who I am or what I expect.” – San Holo
