TRACK | Honey Radar – Medium Mary Todd

5/5 golden merles

Sickly strummed guitars and cooing, warbled vocals are good. This song has both. It also has the most minimalistic drum track you may have ever heard in which one remains technically present.

The sum of it’s parts are quietly a spectacle that is worth taking in.

It has all the energy and promise of that first demo draft of a melody and rough lyric, a stab taken on tape, to play back later to build upon, before the verses are nailed down and the chorus repeats, burdensomely, to warrant having taught it to the band in the first place.

At 74 seconds, It’s a non-invasive surgery. What do you have to lose.
