It's better to focus on the delivery ..., and let the sultry vibes wash over you, or suck you in, as ultimately that's HONNE's real intention here.

Clash
‘Warm On A Cold Night’ is essentially a pick-up line delivered in Andy’s charmingly unfinished croak, wrapped in sensual synths and slick basslines. That’s not to say it doesn’t tackle a fair share of heartbreak, it’s just disguised by swoon-inducing choruses.

The Line of Best Fit

Warm On A Cold Night is the awkward first date where no-one is quite sure what to do so they stick to the tried and tested patterns. Not bad, but not earth-shattering.

This is the "I just broke up"/"I am so single and lonely" Honne album.

Pretty, but boring. A little bit similar case as Wet's "Don't You" - beautiful sounds as single records, but when you listen to 16 almost the same songs, You have enough of it.
