Described as "An unapologetic throwback to a time where guitar bands ruled the charts” (RGM Magazine), Honours are a new 4-piece band hailing from the city of York. Formed in 2018, with Jordan Brown on Lead Vocals, Struan McInnes on Guitar, Tom McVey on Bass, and Dan Atkinson on Drums, the band quickly created a dynamic, Rock n Roll set. The band blends a mixture of Indie and Alternative Rock to create a unique sound. This is brought together by an energetic on stage performance, and the band loves playing live no matter the stage. The band plays with a maturity and confidence that leaves audiences bouncing from start to finish. With every gig getting
Honours' appeal to fans is the chemistry between the members. The band are 4 mates that love playing music together, and this shows when they are on stage.
The band has a number of influences, from the Arctic Monkeys and Kasabian; to Oasis and The Stone Roses. The band has spent 2018 building a solid fan base in York before looking a head to getting out of their home town in 2019.
The bands goals for 2019 are to build on the successes of 2018, and keep developing the set. The band hopes to be able to get onto some festivals in the summer of 2019.
"Honours were next and as they always seem to do they played a set that could easily have been from a headline slot. Two songs that are now becoming classics; “Freedom” and “Duchess” had the crowd, which included members of Hello Operator, bouncing hard. Daniel and Tom power a finely tuned rhythm section engine which under pins the riff laden road laid down by Struan. On top of that is Jordan’s excellent vocal which could power a Formula 1 car. They also showcased a new song, “Gone” which might be their next single. It was apparently not even a week old and for me it stole their set, a truly stunning tune. Once again this raises my expectations in anticipation of the first Honours album, whenever that might arise." - https://withjustahintofmayhem.blog
