The Austin, Texas band Honey Made released the single “Upstairs,” and it’s a fun, funky come-on song that’s a perfect introduction to the R&B group’s full-bodied, dance-friendly sound.
On their website, the band describes “Upstairs” as “a peek of what’s to come” on their upcoming album release. “Our next project is diving into all the different arrays of soul and R&B. ‘Upstairs’ is sort of a homage to the days of Motown.” Check out the lyric video above.
Led by brothers Willie and Christopher Barnes, the nine-piece brass ensemble formed in 2018, with a sound that Austin Monthly described as “somewhere between James Brown and Earth, Wind & Fire.” Their debut album, Brand New, was produced by Steve Berlin of Los Lobos.
“Upstairs” is the band’s new single, and it builds on the the high-energy, funk/soul sound the band showcased during the early years of their career.
