As we navigate Honey Badger, we go in search of resonators; personalities we can connect with, we encounter Lizards, Bruisers, Horses, beguiling tales of prophetic nature and total and utter nonsense.
Reflecting Dorcha’s own nature as a group of unusual introverts with an aversion to sitting still, the tumultuous turns of the album represent the breadth of the human condition as our worlds unpredictably collide on macro and micro levels. Psychedelic prog beginnings give way to a synth-disco-party at the centre, with momentary dips into darker grunge, and the final third floating into an ethereal fantasia of synths and strings with the likes of ‘Hose’ and ‘Horses’. And mind you don’t miss the dark under-current of a presence named ‘Le Loyon’.
Wherever you’re drawn to within the 5D world of the Honey Badger, who’s ‘sharp teeth glisten’, the band sincerely hopes you don’t fall into the jaws, and instead manage to shed some skin, a little light, and perhaps even find what you’re looking for.
