HONEYSLIDE - SUGAR ROUTINE
I can’t recall exactly how I came across this band but I’ve been playing their two songs ep on soundcloud ever since earlier today. The band goes by Honeyslide, a four piece from London and I’m absolutely mesmerized. I love when artists today can channel the sounds of an earlier time through their music and that’s exactly what Honeyslide has done. Lately it seems like fresh shoegaze groups are few and far between but “Drippin” gives me hope that the genre can still remain strong. The song opens with a slow, grunge type feel and then everything quickly turns fuzzy and continues to flow along with a moderate pace. While the vocals can be indistinguishable that adds to the hazy, romantic vibe of the track and when it’s over you’re left feeling as if could’ve all been a dream. I certainly hope that this band records more soon but for now I have “Drippin” and “I Do” to tie me over.
