Honors Chill in Say Yes
Toronto’s Honors sounds chilly cool in “Say Yes,” an anthemic and relaxing indie pop anthem whose familiar swagger will strike a pleasant chord with music fans. The track boasts an energy that most listeners of indie pop should be well acquainted with already, with Honors delivering their own brand of the chill electronic music that already features the likes of Porter Robinson and Galimatias. While we’re not the most thrilled with how somewhat normal and safe the song sounds, we love how tight and apt it is at delivering an upbeat yet relaxing vibe.
Honors does a great job dishing forth a solid and straight forward anthem. “Say Yes” is chill all throughout, with a chorus that is catchy enough to either dance to or simply vibe with. Mixing echoey vocals and haunting bass synths, “Say Yes” wastes no time in pleasing its audience.
We love its production too, as Honors does a fantastic job in letting the song’s instruments and tight sequences allow the song’s vibe to soar. “Say Yes” really rides strong on its foundation, with Honors putting together a fantastic and chill pop anthem that is easy to vibe to.
As fantastically put together the song is, we are a little concerned with how safe “Say Yes” feels overall. Undoubtedly, Honors puts together a wonderful performance here and really allows its melange of haunting vocals and deep bass sequences to really lift off in the song.
But its inability to really stand out as something different and bold hurts the overall charm of “Say Yes.” As excellent and pleasing as it sounds, the overall package isn’t too different from the mainstream brand of indie pop that we’re familiar with.
Still, Honors does a great job putting together a package that audiences will vibe to either in music venues or during car rides. We’re not too fond of how safe they play it, but its haunting and easy going charm allows “Say Yes” to really give us a good impression.
