Wildhoney Try to Breathe in ‘Thin Air’ on Shoegazey Single

After a few years of low-key EP releases, Baltimore shoegaze revivalists Wildhoney issued their debut LP Sleep Through It earlier this year, but they’re already back with more guitar divebombs and vocal wisps for their new label Topshelf. They’ll release an EP called Your Face Sideways in just a couple of weeks, but today the quartet is sharing a new single called “Thin Air,” a nearly four-minute exploration of the intersection between indie pop and shoe that hasn’t been explored so expertly since the Ecstasy of Saint Theresa‘s first reverb-coated flower bombs.

Your Face Sideways is due out October 16 on Topshelf. Check out “Thin Air” and a host of upcoming tour dates below.
