Listen to Honeychile's autumnal new single "Red Town" - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

Philly multi-instrument Becca Graham just shared her latest release as Honeychile, a new single called “Red Town.” Produced by Jae Richardson, Graham writes that the song is “inspired by Wyclef Jean circa The Fugees, Halloween, writer’s block and seasonal depression.”

Suited to the season we’re in now, “Red Town” explores the uncertainty that lies between the celebrated spookiness of Halloween and the quickly-darkening afternoons that follow. Graham sings, “every fall I’m falling through / ain’t nothing new / that’s just my habit to.”

Best known as the trumpeter in local nine-piece hip-hop collective Hardwork Movement, Becca Graham released her first EP as Honeychile, [i], last year. She sees the project as a way of getting in touch with her familial roots as a Black American southerner while challenging and redefining our perceptions of the Black musical canon.

Listen to “Red Town” below. Honeychile opens for Riders Against the Storm at Johnny Brenda’s on December 1. Find tickets and more information on the XPN Concert Calendar.
