The land of summer heat and wine, roadside dirt and seas of wheat, tangy morning dew and black chasm of the night sky - all of this is Ukraine’s South. Its summer sun can easily intoxicate a careless traveler. But isn’t the dreamy sleep in the grass in the land of dancing road mirages worth it?

“Sun and honey” is an ode to the South and an attempt to distill the memory of a hot summer day from childhood. The song starts with a synth that accidentally “trips” into a stoner, grunge, and psychedelic rock-inspired intro. The song doesn’t rush into full throttle until the driving beat and sped-up guitar part kick in. The heat rises with the entry of heavy guitars and reaches its peak with the lines:

“And sun and honey

Will intoxicate more than wine,

And our dance with fire up this steppe!”
