Naive Castle 05:52
Kiss Me 05:07


Formerly based in Baltimore, Wildhoney have moved to the west coast and are now releasing their first new music in over two years. "Naive Castle" shows a new side to the band, dialing down some of the shoegaze haze in favor of gorgeous, chiming pop that recalls the finest from bands like The Sundays and The Cranberries. It's the perfect soundtrack to these melancholic days as summer turns to fall. Pay extra attention to the lengthy ambient outro, a lovely touch that points to more new directions for this terrific band.

On the b-side you'll find a dreamy, late-night cover of Sixpence None the Richer's "Kiss Me" that brings a wasted weariness to this tale of teenage yearning. It's a beautiful, earnest take on a tune that turns out to be a perfect match for Wildhoney's swooning style.

"Naive Castle" is a featured entry in Slumberland Records' SLR30 Singles Series -- a subscription series that will feature a dozen singles from some of our favorite current bands who *aren't* on Slumberland already. Look for more crucial limited edition vinyl 7" to be released in throughout 2019.
