  • Self Portrait in 3 Colors
    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    "Self-portrait in three colors" is the peak of a two year journey of self discovery. This LP is a musical manifesto of not-giving-a-fuck comprised of three explorations in color and style, each with its own unique energy and atmosphere. The Honkers' prohibition to conform unlocked doors to their musical subconsciousness allowing them to pack each tune full of cinematic vibes, contemplative text, and alluring harmonies all while bringing the party. Wild at heart they unleash their hand-made tour de force showcasing all their influences from retro to modern music with a particular focus on swing.The band's 3rd LP features 2 remixes and a bonus track "Next Level" which was unexpectedly recorded during the course of a computer malfunction induced jam at a video shoot.

    From rave to boogie-woogie, through EDM, jazz, indie-Hip-pop, swing and funk, Self portrait in 3 colors is hot fusion with a
    load of personality. The Dirty Honkers mange to have their cake,
    and eat it too, with enough dirty sweets to go around!

I see the garbage, it’s in my way I hear the cars pass by all of the day Techno beats banging in the park Collecting bottles for the Penny Markt Feel the concrete racking as I walk blindfolded through the urban jungle no intention of stopping Got to keep role playing even if the sky is falling GPS on target Final Fantasy puppet Neckbreaka Techno-lo-jesus tries to feed us but bleeds us dry Go dead half our lives def, dumb and blind folded While we’re bulldozered and piled up in rows On the road to nowhere with no roses I don’t care something's in the air there's something in the air something's in the air Screechy (chorus) Breath from the minute we start the day till we put our clothes aways the music is all around let's forget ourselves tonight clear our thoughts and turn to light the music is all around I’m just a sinner, lost to this world looking for magic In all the wrong furrows. Breathe in the day Round and round and round we go Screechy Life measured on the clock Keep the conversation down to small talk Tunnel vision keeps the light dim System overload so I can't swim Feel the concrete racking as I walk blindfolded through the urban jungle no intention of stopping No need to look back saddle up and attack Navigation on course, destination Neckbreaka Techno-lo-jesus tries to feed us but bleeds us dry Go dead half our lives def, dumb and blind folded While we’re bulldozed and piled up in rows On the road to nowhere with no roses I don’t care something's in the air there's something in the air something's in the air, in the air, in the air Screechy (chorus) Breath from the minute we start the day till we put our clothes aways the music is all around let's forget ourselves tonight clear our thoughts and turn to light the music is all around I’m just a sinner, lost to this world looking for magic In all the wrong furrows. Breathe in the day Round and round and round we go

about

This album is the result of a two years long journey. Starting with the swinging sound of GREEN followed by the room-filling bass sound of BLUE to finish in glitter with PINK. The title "Self Portrait in 3 Colors" reflect the different personalities of the three members but also a homage to Charles Mingus, the legendary jazz composer.
This LP is a musical manifesto of not-giving-a-fuck comprised of three explorations in color and style, each with its own unique energy and atmosphere. The Honkers' prohibition to conform to one particular style is put to work in a fresh concept where they unleash their hand-made tour de force showcasing a wide range of influences. From rave to boogie-woogie, through EDM, jazz, indie-Hip-pop, swing and funk, "Self Portrait in 3 Colors" is hot fusion with a load of personality.
