Open Hand - Honey Cover

Finally back on the scene...

Finally back on the scene with yet another line-up and with their first release since 05’s stunning ‘You And Me’, Justin Isham and co. appear to have lost their focus a little this time around. Perhaps it’s the fact that ‘Honey’ has had so long to gestate; perhaps it’s the dissipation of youthful aggression. Either way, this album is an undeniably mellower proposition than its predecessor and while the distinctive, fuzzed-out guitar tones and beautifully melodic male / female vocals retain the signature Open Hand sound, ill-advised hip-hop collaborations and a largely blissed-out, experimental vibe frustratingly leave little room for rock action.
