Honeyspider are evolving. Following a recent line-up change the Lancashire quartet’s fun, fuzzy shoegaze has expanded to include shades of post-rock and metal. A fresh taste of that is their new single, the dense and dynamic ‘Marbles’, out today. Those background screams are definitely a nice touch.

The band’s 2017 ‘In a Haze’ EP was a solid effort that lived up to its name but this feels more confident and better developed. It’s definitely darker. That could be down to a greater debt to influences like Deftones and Deafheaven, or it could just be the current state of the world seeping into Honeyspider’s sound.

Beautiful melancholy for fans of My Vitriol, My Bloody Valentine, and my iTunes library.
