London based duo Strabe have just released their new single “Honey”. It features on their debut album “How Our Love Grows”, due for release on 20th October.
“How Our Love Grows” will also include their most recent singles “All My Heart” and “Memories” in addition to ‘going viral’ with their first track “Best Worst Year”, which surpassed 11 million streams.
“Honey” is a dizzying dopamine-hit as inspired by the effortless disco of Kylie Minogue as that first rush of queer love. With lyrics that gifted “How Our Love Grows” its title, “Honey” also continues to build the visual world Strabe have built around their upcoming record; this time, relocating their AI-generated selves from the Margate seaside of “All My Heart” straight to the dancefloor, directed by Tom Furse.
Strabe are alt-pop duo Angelica and Emmet, whose debut album proves a bright, bittersweet exploration of grief, growth, gender, and personal evolution. Strabe originally met in the smoking section of Cork Music Festival, bonding over their eerily similar music tastes before quickly realising that they each represented the missing piece of the other’s creative dreams. Angelica, who is originally from Edinburgh, had pages upon pages of lyrics without a real home, while Dubliner Emmet had an electronic solo project without a voice tethering it all together.
A furiously prolific group, Strabe moved to London between lockdowns and set about making music IRL again at last. Before their first body of work had a name, it had a colour – a deep vivid blue, beaming out of the cyanotype prints that Angelica began making throughout the writing process, and percolating like rushing water through the genre-fluid production work of Emmet. With a sound that summons the wistful alternative-pop of other bands, “How Our Love Grows” navigates those choppy waters of young adulthood, from the swelling highs to what happens when the wave breaks.
