Honest Engines have sidled away from the sun, from the sounds of it. Following two fantastic three-song EPs, the band is now gearing up for the release of their debut full-length Going Away. The record's third track "Faster Van" starts in the shadows, letting a meandering bassline and haunting waves of synths waft upwards. And while they may be in a sadder space, Honest Engines definitely haven't lost their knack for the crescendo. This one explodes on an almost post-rock scale as the echoes build and spill over the top. It's their darkest work yet, and certainly among their best.
Going Away will be released via Tandem Shop on July 17. Stream "Faster Van" below.
