    At this point, it's no secret that we are absolutely obsessed with anything HONEYHONEY-related. It all started back in 2012 when we filmed a concert with the duo in Austin, TX. Then just last month, we welcomed one half of HONEYHONEY, Suzanne Santo, to our studio for a powerful session filled with lots of laughter. Naturally, now it's time to let the other half of the duo, Benjamin Jaffe, shine.

    It's safe to say we were pretty excited to receive "Dominator," the video for the lead single off of Jaffe's upcoming solo debut Oh, Wild Ocean of Love (out spring 2018 on Diamond Family Records). In the minimalistic visual, we see Jaffe sing against a white backdrop as graphics of drum kits flash, synchronized with the glitchy beat. Jaffe's vocal is smooth as butter and serves up spine-tingling harmonies reminiscent of Father John Misty. This gorgeous arrangement just goes to show that, while we will forever love HONEYHONEY, Jaffe stepping into the spotlight and showing off his musical chops might just be a really great move.

    Jaffe sent Baeble this quirky statement on the video: "We made this video with a little budget and a big dream of me eating the shrunken heads of politicians. Without (co-director) Sage Atwood, it never would have happened. See, without friends, dreams are just silly little stories to wile away the time. I hope you like the video, I know it likes you."
