Honey Bones – “The Fall”


Honey Bones, formed in 2013, is a collaboration between two artists who live in California and Idaho, swapping recordings in collaborative fashion. New track “The Fall”, off their Black EP, begins with nocturnal synth-laden pulsations, the serene vocals emerging alongside a quaint guitar twang. 01:10 finds the vocals, guitars, and synth pulsations combining for a chilling melodic effect. The backing instrumentation resembles something James Blake would command his lead over. The understated, patient vocals work exceedingly well here though, especially as the sparse around the two-minute mark ascends into the “should’ve known” hook. Capable of atmosphere and creeping melodic charm, “The Fall” shows Honey Bones as an act where location barriers don’t inhibit creative collaboration.
