Marbles

by Honeyspider

Honeyspider's new single, “Marbles”. The foursome breath new life into their pseudo-shoegaze sound with strokes of post rock, hinting towards metal influences. Marbles skirts the boundaries between the emo sound of previous single, “World’s Smallest Violin” and a darker, more expansive sound.
