“Honeydew (Honey Don’t)” is a delectable track from Canadian band An Hour a Minute, fusing rock, power-pop, and psychedelic elements with shimmering hook-abundant charm. The “waiting for something better,” chorus soars with anthemic vocals and pulsing synth majesty, contrasting enjoyably from the concise, bouncier verses. A dreamy bridge — “oh, how I wish,” — is joined by hypnotic synths and guitars, driving cohesively into the aforementioned anthemic chorus. “Honeydew (Honey Don’t)” tempts replays immediately with its melodically gripping sound and soaring production.
The band elaborate more on the track’s creative process, below:
“This song went through a few different iterations, and the final product is very different from what we had originally started with! Honeydew was one of the first lyrics, so “honey don’t” seemed like a logical and natural addition. The song title itself may have been inspired by the fact that we spent quite a few summer days working on this.”
“Honeydew (Honey Don’t)” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2021’ Spotify playlist.
