After the release of their November single, “Dog,” UK alternative trio Sleemo releases yet another face melter in the form of “For The Honest.” Spending 2021 and 2022 developing and reimagining their sound whilst performing alongside the likes of Jamie Lenman, DITZ, CLT DRP, Torus, Slap Rash and Enola Gay up and down the UK, “For The Honest” represents a new era for the trio.

Discussing their latest single, Sleemo states:

“‘For The Honest’ is a song about feeling empty or not as good as you are. It’s a personal feeling that certain individuals get on almost a daily basis. You continuously compare yourself to others which leads you to then view yourself in a negative way which leads you to doubt yourself in your skill of your profession or anything that others believe you are worth more in. In something that you are already doing incredibly well with, you still believe you can do better or be better. You view yourself as an empty void, just a shell of a being.”
