If you’re a regular reader of the Nashville Scene (and why wouldn’t you be?), you’ve likely already seen the debut of “Grenadine”, the official video for Heaven Honey’s latest single. However, it really bears repeating that if you haven’t seen it already, you need to partake ASAP.
The black-and-white piece was shot and edited by Hannah Gray Hall with styling from Juniper Jefferies. It is, to put it simply, a work of art. Heaven Honey has a long tradition of successfully partnering with visual artists that push the envelope of her work (see also “Total Abandon” and “Honeydew“) and “Grenadine” continues that practice, leaning further into abstract imagery and metaphor without losing an ounce of captivation.
Heaven Honey has always struck me as a bit of an enigma. The 2020 release of Total Abandon b/w Tommorow I’ll Try came out of nowhere; a fully formed artist with a razor sharp message about societal imbalances, sexuality, romance and a sound that strikes a balance between the melancholy and the darkly empowered. In the ensuring two years, that sharpness has only become more distinct and even more realized. I don’t know how she does it but “Grenadine” continues to push those boundaries and there doesn’t seem to be a misstep in sight. Can’t wait to see what’s next.
