Honey Montazemi Releases “Try To Love”

Realising her debut single ‘Try to Love’, North London Singer-Songwriter, Honey Montazemi is making a musical statement contrary to the usual love song with her unique fusion of atmospheric Folk. Echoing in subtle measures Nancy Sinatra to a guitar led backdrop the track evokes a curious nostalgia, a deep and bittersweet yearning for the past. Watch here

Speaking on the track, Honey explains: Try to Love was written at a time when I was pretty much void of any substantial emotion. My mental health was at an all time low. I was in a dark place, dealing with grief and attempting to mask it with various toxic relationships. I couldn’t love myself, let alone try to love anyone else.”

Describing herself first and foremost as a Poet, Honey takes insight from writers such as Emerson, Whitman, Bukowski and Ginsberg – calling them her life teachers and from whom she learned that her Art would be autobiographical. Not taking this notion lightly, Honey depicts the complications of life, and her battles with mental health, through disarming and brutal lyrics and melodies.

Hailing from Tehran, Iran but due to political suppression her mother decided to travel around the world with Honey for several years, before setting up home in North London, England. Living and being schooled in a nomadic way has been what Honey describes as “a gift and a curse”. “It was a wonderful upbringing – to be free to learn the ways of many different cultures, to study their religions and to be exposed to their music, it shaped the person I am today. But I also grew up as an outsider, a loner and I never felt as if I belonged anywhere. It’s an instability that to this day I cannot shake, but it’s a unique source of inspiration that I will never take for granted – I’m finally glad for my diversities.”
