The track had it’s premiere on BBC Radio 6Music last week. ‘Honest’ is a much bolder track than we’ve heard from McClair in the past, not only in the sense that it shows a real musical progression for him, but that McClair has become more confident. In a way, mirroring the sentiment of the song, McClair bares himself for the world to see – hand on heart, passionate and emotionally candid.
It’s hard to resist the charm of McClair’s smooth, honey-like croon that he weaves so well above a powerfully soft and gentle driving melody. When an artist puts themselves in a place of vulnerability like McClair does, as a listener you can only be pulled in by the sincerity of someone pouring their heart out through song, it’s a beautiful thing to be let into someone’s world.
