Be Calm Honcho is a San Francisco-based band whose origin story begins with a haircut. An amateur haircut was traded for a keyboard, a bunch of other things happened, and the rest is history. It’s been more than a year since that haircut, and now the foursome is gearing up for the release of their debut LP on Crossbill Records later this month.
Before that happens, we’ve got the full advance stream of the album, Honcho Dreams. Falling somewhere between dive-bar-stomp and showtune surf, the album should have you swaying back and forth as choreographed improv dancers follow you around. The sweetly dawning track Pretty On The West Coast opens with the line, “I think you are so cool.” Ditto, Be Calm Honcho. Stream all of Honcho Dreams below.
