HÔN is a remarkable new artist that challenges the conventions of pop music and serves an abundance of insanely catchy songs on the forthcoming debut album White Lion. It’s an album that elegantly combines the songwriting-virtues of classic pop with an indie musician's awkwardly charming take on R&B, dance and 80er melancholy.

The epicenter of HÔN is Jesper Lidang, frontman and songwriter of The Rumour Said Fire.

When we asked Jesper to describe his new music we received a two-page essay entitled 'I vanish'. In HÔN Jesper Lidang’s  personality vanishes into a universe where he can speak with multiple voices and identities at once - a vast and larger than life universe. HÔN is a liberated pop-machine that hits the ground running - a many headed creature that finds nutrition and shelter in ever changing expressions.

HÔN is a pop mashup; it’s Jesper's exploration of the harmonious & eloquent vs the raw & edgy in the same musical movement.

“It’s essential to my music and my definition of HÔN that only the strongest of melodies survive. I want it to move you and to stick to your brain” – Jesper Lidang

The music has been written over the past two years. Jesper's longtime fascination with vintage drum machines and hip-hop beats is one of the cornerstones in the songwriting that’s also characterized by multiple layers of Jesper's vocals used as an musical instrument, while his distinctive lead vocals guides the listener through the melodic cut-up universe and its striking synth productions.

All songs are recorded and sung by Jesper alone. Nis Bysted (producer of Iceage, Cancer, Lower) has produced and mixed HÔN together with Jesper and the result is a powerful signature-sound where you can either plunge into the musical deep or let your body move to the music  –or do both.

“I have no notion of what is most true or most me, I just notice that I have these feelings, and then I start the beat and hope to vanish” – Jesper Lidang
