Memorial Share New Single ‘Honest’

Fast-rising British folk-pop duo Memorial, consisting of artists Jack and Ollie, have just shared their brand new single Honest, the latest single to be taken from their eagerly-awaited self-titled debut album arriving on April 29th through Lucy Rose’s Real Kind Records (Bess Atwell, Samantha Crain). 
Honest is a sweeping piece of indie-folk music that finds the pair delivering a broader and more atmospheric endeavour with a mixture of soaring production and heartfelt dual vocals. Their stunning vocals and dreamy harmonies are definitely what won me over from the start and the song's overall warmth just makes it even more of a memorable and enthralling listening experience. As one of the first songs they ever conceived together, it has this raw and unbridled texture to it, almost untouched by outside influences and honing in on their original direction in its purest form.  
Honest is a song that aims to inspire hope to all that go through turbulent and emotionally abusive relationships, it shares a message that they deserve better. This message is wrapped around a polished production packed with intricate guitar melodies nicely paired with steady percussion that, along with their vocals, create an overall warm and intimate atmosphere. Check it out below!



Adding about the new release, they said, 
This song is one of the first we wrote as Memorial. It’s about witnessing one of our friends in a turbulent and often emotionally abusive relationship. The song attempts to inspire hope, and to understand that they deserve better. Accepting and presenting yourself as a conduit for positive change, rather than offering yourself as a solution, you don’t need anything in return other than to know that person has found happiness.
