COLLECTIVE - “Honeycomb”/”Gotham”
came across the new single from this band a few months
back and found myself curious.
“Honeycomb” is an upbeat song that balances pop hooks and a cathcy rock
melody with strange percussion and an off kilter approach to make something
that’s odd yet has something aintriguing to it.
“Gotham” is a slower song with a tweaked vibe to it that seems to lie somewhere between
art pop and sonic collage. I know
Animal Collective can be kind of
polarizing but there’s something
that’s hard to explain about the music here
that keeps them from being generic
indie rock and makes them intersting to
hear. This is one single you’ll
need to hear and decide for yourself.
