Hot Press is proud to premiere Honas' third single, 'Cash Machine'.
Honas has been busy for most of 2020, releasing three songs in three months. His third offering is 'Cash Machine', a dreamy, electro-pop infused tune about the vicious cycle of artistry in a capitalist world.
"I found myself in that situation where I was doing bits of work that were essential for me to afford to live in Dublin, but ultimately none of them were what I wanted to do, they weren’t making me feel fulfilled," Honas explains. "The jobs were energy-sapping, and made it very difficult to find motivation to do what I love, which is writing and producing music.
"I started to see time flying by, with all my goals and intentions almost becoming a joke, just meaningless words that I got sick of saying to myself. You can get so far from where you want to be that you don’t even know where to start to get back there. And it’s weird, sometimes you can start seeing an almost funny side to how ridiculous that situation is."
The shimmering instrumentation plays beautifully against Honas' laidback vocal stylings. Keep your ear tuned to Honas for future releases!
