A Taste Of is the debut EP by Canberra/Sydney dub R’n’B foursome Honey 2 Honey.
Originally a duo of Rory Stenning (a stalwart of Canberra’s electronic scene via his solo project Raus) and drummer Luke Keanan-Brown, the project now straddles two cities, incorporating Sydney members Del Lumanta (Gas, Video Ezy, Basic Human) and Daryl Prondoso (Phone, Basic Human).
A Taste Of was recorded at a secret Sydney location by Holy Balm’s Yoni Hochman and Enderie’s Andrew McLellan. The EP’s four songs configure elements of jazz, dub, krautrock, disco and R’n’B into irresistible offbeat, hypnotic pop.
Rory’s deep, lulling voice intones imagistic lyrics, conveying themes rather than stories. Arresting lead single Tone Of Voice says more about intimate relationships than most confessional songwriting, while obscuring personal detail.
