Watch Exclusively via The Wild Honey Pie

Nu Deco Ensemble have premiered their live performance video of "Honeybody" ft. Kishi Bashi exclusively via The Wild Honey Pie.

Watch HERE.

Combining the elegance and drama of classical music with the accessibility of pop music, the performance embodies the innovative, Miami-based ensemble's mission to celebrate living composers and reimagine all genres of music.
"Its sonic maximalism is impossible to listen to without smiling and dancing along", notes The Wild Honey Pie. "This orchestra for the 21st century proves that classical instruments have a place in modern music."
"Honeybody" is drawn from Nu Deco Ensemble's recently released self-titled debut album, available here: fanlink.to/NDE-Album.
