On the latest remix, 'Day To Day', UK electronic artist Cephas Teom grafts elements of live coding, generative electronica and hyperreal FM synthesis onto his melodic jazz sensibilities, coaxing the soulful hues from Honan's exquisite vocal performance, skillfully weaving a complex yet considered composition.

The video for 'Slow Down' was concieved and directed by Nuala, visually exploring the two intertwined stories within the song: her experience with a loved one and the Irish legend, 'The Children of Lir'. With Nuala as the creative director, Tommy Martin from Bandfilms as the director of photography and Linzy Nanakorn as movement director, it’s playfully collaborative, with further contributions from editor Simon Panrucker and paper swan maker Emma Powell completing the core team.
Much more than “just” a lyric video, the lively stop-motion animation piece was conceived and made by Honan herself while in lockdown, remotely collaborating with her friend, visual/FX artist PJ Wood.
Filled with colourful and characterful paper motifs, painstakingly crafted and photographed, to illuminate the vivid imagery in the song – which explores themes of memories and learned behaviour, particularly tapping into the terror, thrill and sensory overwhelm of a trip to the Great Barrier Reef as a small child.
