Agent K(ahunasan) Baltimore's Wildhoney unleash their Shogazing dreampop confections in a "live" in studio setting.
Waves of guitar distortion almost swallow up Lauren's willowy vocals on most of these tracks as she strains to remain audible above the sonic mayhem swirling all around her.
This band has shoegazing chops in spades.
Your ears will definitely be ringing and your head buzzing when these guys & gal come to town. Favorite track: Maybe You're Crazy.

about

Wildhoney are a band from Baltimore whose indie pop sentiments structure their noisy rock edge. Led by the sugary, dream-like vocals of lead singer Lauren Shusterich, the band formed to "combat the masculine aggression" of Baltimore's hardcore scene. In 2015, Wildhoney released debut full-length, "Sleep Through It," as well as a six track EP entitled, "Your Face Sideways." Both releases serve as the perfect fuzzy soundtrack to those late nights or sunny afternoons when a firm pillow sounds better than opening the front door. It's an optimistic twist on agoraphobia, clearly preferring the safety of a bedroom and down comforter over the tense outside world. Their lethargic, chugging movements echo this sentiment by constantly reminding the listener that when things get bad there's a place to escape in your own mind.

Though often categorized as "shoegaze," Wildhoney prefers to disassociate themselves from the genre. Their oblique chord structures and waves of swirling, cloudy guitar noise fit within the sonic realm of such bands, but they're far more focused on pop songwriting than noise for its own sake. They understand that good songwriting evokes emotion and is far more important than the technique or gear used to form it. Wildhoney drives their content home, making sure that doom, joy, and depression is felt with every heavy floor tom smash and coagulated guitar crunch.

Check them out performing tracks from both releases on Audiotree Live.
