Around since 2006, Honig has been getting quite a lot of attention via his 2nd album Empty Orchestra, which came out in 2012 via Rough Trade Records, but his single My Drunken Head, from the album, has been getting a lot of airplay the past few months. Honig’s music is well crafted and very accessible (he sings in English, in case you were concerned) and he sings with a genuine emotion and commitment. He embodies all the qualities of a memorable artist, and I suspect we’ll be hearing more from him and his band in the coming months.
But in the meantime, you can check out this gig and listen for yourself. He comes as a pleasant surprise – but that’s just me.
