Over the course of our extraordinarily impressive career as music taste makers, Terence and I have seen plenty of lo-fi rock bands fade into the endless obscurity of non-relevance. However, one band that only seems to get better with each new track is UK shoegazers Honeyslide. Pulling on clear influences from Sonic Youth and My Bloody Valentine, “Black Dolphin” may be their most stunning and memorable track yet. Clocking in at just under 7 minutes, “Black Dolphin” is a slow and heavily atmospheric listen with only hints at their grunge and punk-based routes. With Honeyslide maturing their sound this well, it’s hard to imagine that they’ll be fated to fade away.
