Warm, sensual but full of groove, Honne’s first track, ‘Warm On A Cold Night’, feels inspired by the intricate productions of Frank Ocean, the smooth R&B of Inc., and more vocal-led, classic Soul artists such as Bill Withers. It’s a beguiling and romantic mix, lyrically tracing the journey of two people running away together, and giving everything to one another. Further contributing to the night-time atmospherics, Honne wrote the song in the dark, in under two hours, and between jobs teaching music in schools (James would frequently write chord progressions whilst waiting for students to show up). The results are evocative and escapist, in stark contrast to Honne’s more DIY, homespun productions (the sample of the American DJ in the opener is in fact the pair’s housemate, who made him up).
