Been craving more music like HONNE ever since you discovered them? Well, me too, and I’ve finally found an answer; in the form of Californian alt-soul band VOKES, in particular their song ‘Value’. Released in February this year, ‘Value’ serves as VOKES’ second single – having released ‘Cruel Game’ just before – and is a swirling wonder of elusive synths and hazy vocals. Its contrasting ambient verses and buoyant choruses make it hard to place its genre, leaving it wavering somewhere in the pool between chillwave and alt-pop – definitely an area that seems to be being explored by artists a lot recently, much to my happiness. Along the lines of Jack Garratt and Josef Salvat, too.
