London-based 7-piece alt-folk ensemble – led by vocalist Dave Malkin – Black Hours has released new track ‘Saccharine’ from their latest ‘Saccharine EP’.
‘Saccharine’ is a wonderfully moving dreamy, folky number dominated by some poetically weathered vocals from frontman Malkin . It powerfully sweeps up from syncopated, sad plucks like a mournful breeze as Black Hours’ femininely cavernous backing vocals help up the stakes to their intensely symphonic peak. Swimming in pools full of Damien Rice’s golden era appeal, ‘Saccharine’ sweetly delivers on moving mountains of the ensemble’s sonic quality through should-be high-end living room speakers.
The perfect production helps stretch every inch of harmonic plucking and rubbing from the 7-piece’s strings – with each replay proving that Black Hours have delivered a beautiful release with ‘Saccharine’. Every indie, folk – and any respecting independent music – lover should give this bitterly sweet track a taste.
