Since releasing "Warm on a Cold Night" in 2014, HONNE has built a huge fanbase with their catchy, moody pop songs and collaborations with Pink Sweat$, Anna of the North, and Khalid. The duo of James Hatcher and Andy Clutterbuck released their latest album, LET’S JUST SAY THE WORLD ENDED A WEEK FROM NOW, WHAT WOULD YOU DO?, in October. We caught up with them on tour before their show at New York's Terminal 5. Clutterbuck did most of the talking.

Where did the title of the latest album come from?
Andy Clutterbuck: Hey! The album title came from the opening line of a song we have called "WHAT WOULD YOU DO?" We felt it was such a provocative question, especially given the time it was released, when in many ways it had felt like the world was ending.

Or just wanting something new for your playlist? Framed around the Groove of the Night, we've got some picks you won't want to miss. Below, check out our latest obsessions, rated on a (slay) scale of Super Chill to Wig Snatched.

Lexxi Saal - "Break a Bottle"

Sometimes, you just need to get out of your own mind. Lexi Saal bends the euphoric notions of the dance floor with a breezy, addicting melody ripe for rolling the windows down. "I got a dirty secret I don't know how to keep," she sings into a haze of sloshed drinks and magnetic, midnight beats. The song, drenched in trembling guitar and playful, sensual vocal distortion, "came from me wanting to write a dance song inclusive to everyone who like me wants to have a good time," she says. We're just here for a good time, and this is the cream of this week's crop.
