Pop duo, Honey and Jude have released their latest single, “The Real Thing,” a lively song that paints the vivid image of star-crossed lovers in reckless abandon, without a doubt in the world that what they have is the real thing. Sonically, the single stays true to the classic Honey and Jude anthemic sound, with a new 80’s synth pop flair. “The Real Thing” is now available for download and streaming worldwide.
Produced by Mark McKee (Rooney, Delta Rae), the single details conventional methods a couple resorts to for showing devotion towards one another. “‘The Real Thing’ is a throwback, slow track, old school kind of love,” the duo explains. “It hearkens back to a day when asking a girl out on a date meant sneaking her a handwritten letter instead of a generic text, a day when going steady with a boy was about more than just updating your Facebook status to ‘In a relationship.’” For Honey and Jude, the old school dating approach of communication emphasizes the sincerity that would normally get lost through modern day technology. “It’s about a time when the way we felt about each other wasn’t limited to 140 characters and when memories lasted more than the ten seconds on Snapchat,” they explain. Lyrics such as “I’ll be throwing rocks at the window, sneaking out the back door, laying on the hood of your car,” showcase the image of a forbidden teenage romance.
With a combination of their peppy lyrics and stage presence, Honey and Jude bring something new to the world of pop. Download their new single, “The Real Thing” everywhere music is sold. To follow Honey and Jude, visit their official website at HoneyandJudeMusic.com.
