Honey Montazemi has released her debut single ‘Try to Love’ and accompanying music video and it’s a breath of fresh air. With its nostalgic atmospheric folk vibe which wouldn’t be out of place in a Tarantino film.
The North London Singer-Songwriter writes about the complications of life, and her battles with mental health. She says, “‘Try to Love’ was written at a time when I was pretty much void of any substantial emotion. My mental health was at an all time low. I was in a dark place, dealing with grief and attempting to mask it with various toxic relationships. I couldn’t love myself, let alone try to love anyone else.”
Honey is originally from Tehran, Iran but due to political suppression, her mother decided to travel around the world with her daughter for several years, before making North London their home. Shedescribes herself as a Poet and is influenced by writers such as Emerson, Whitman, Bukowski and Ginsberg. Her debut is beautifully retro and unique and is reminscent of Nancy Sinatra. Honey Montazemi is a true artist.
