Honey on the Beach

Recommended Posts

Well,  we are still in Lockdown here in Cape Town, and we have also had some awful weather, so the last video we were doing from our 2017 album has been delayed a bit. So I was just looking at some old stuff we had done and thought I would just post this video - one of our first videos from about 12 years ago - have to say I was really surprised at how bad the "technical" quality was  - looks very grainy - things on this front have really improved - but anyway the music still sounds OK I think - hope you enjoy it

Cheers

Nigel

PS - you might have to turn the volume on as this is hosted on our website and sometimes the volume is muted

Ooooh, there's music on the video too.   ☺️
All the background sounds that accompanies the vocalist really sets a pleasant laid back mood. Didn't notice any obvious quality problems with the video.

Hi Bjorn

Thanks for that - i think you can notice the grainy quality of the video when you watch it on a full screen.

Anyway hope you liked it and thanks for taking the time to have a listen

Hi Nigel - like I've said before about your songs - they sound radio-ready.  I enjoyed this one as well - did you sing the lead vocal on this?

I enjoyed the video as well - Ursula Andress was a good looking lady back in the day.

Ah, yes the video may be a little poor technically, but still quite good to watch   😄 

Thanks for taking the time to have a watch

Cheers

Thanks for the listen

Hi Nigel,

A video that's easy on the eye and a song that's easy on the ears what more could you want.

Thanks for sharing.

Good Job!

Another outstanding song and production, Nigel!  There's a lot to learn from this, so I'll have to listen and watch it again.  Thank you for sharing!

Think I mentioned sexy bikinis in another thread, oh the days back on Main Street in Seal Beach.

A bit more "popy" than Devine Lie (not a crit, just an observation) to my ears.

As always, top shelf in every way Nigel.

I couldn't concentrate on the music until I turned my monitor off.   :)  Once I did, I really enjoyed the song.  Loved the chord changes.

Hi tom

we all seem to be peddling a lost faster these days but keep going backwards instead of forwards!! i can't work out if its all the garbage in the world we have to tolerate these days, or if its because we are just getting older, sorry more mature!!

You are right, some of our older stuff with Dave singing did tend to be a bit more poppy, well that was until we went all sort of dark and mysterious, but that's another story!!

keep well

Nigel

😁😁 - just think how distracting it could have been in high definition!!!!!

Thanks for the listen and the comments, really appreciated

Terrific 80s sound on this (of course, that also makes it a 2020 sound) -- much like Michael Franks doing some new wavey stuff (but alas he never did) -- the mix is fantastic and everything sounds great -- good work~~Allan.

I don't know what part of the initial beginning (including starting vocal harmonies) reminded me of Brazil 66 - but it did?  Another home run Nigel! Well done!
