Go Out With a Bang | “HONEY (ARE U COMING)” by Måneskin


Prepare to close out the summer with this ultimate dance rock single from Måneskin. Released on Sept. 1, 2023, “HONEY (ARE U COMING?)” is fast and energetic, begging the listener to dance and sing at the top of their lungs. The riffs are infectious, and the raw power behind singer Damiano David’s vocals seems to soak into the soul. The song came out just ahead of their RUSH! world tour, which began on Sept. 3 in Germany. 

Måneskin shakes up their signature sound with this single, blending a fast tempo with minor chords and wistful lyrics. A twist on a love song, the lyrics speak of uncertainty and adventure. One lover speaks to another, promising unknown thrills on the horizon. Their future together is precarious, yet he asks his lover to come with him and to give that future a chance nonetheless.

The song’s upbeat energy is a sharp contrast to the minor chords and lyrics about an unknown future. The band artfully weaves these contrasting themes to create a truly clever piece. 

“We’re gonna get sky-high and create a new world / 

Where somebody might die but nobody gets hurt / 

And if it sounds good for you, baby, just say the word.” 

If you’re returning to school or campus like many of us, then this is the perfect farewell song to summer. School offers new unknowns and new adventures, much like “HONEY (ARE U COMING),” making it the perfect anthem for kicking off a new phase of life. It could not have been released with better timing, and I, for one, will be listening to it every chance I get. 

We should all take a page out of Måneskin’s book and greet life’s unknowns with an open mind. “HONEY (ARE U COMING?)” is undoubtedly an achievement for Måneskin, and it is the perfect song with which to end one chapter of life and jump headfirst into the next.
