In the grand scheme of time, five years isn’t long. In music though, it can feel like forever. After five years away however, Honus Honus and Man Man are back. After signing to Sub Pop they’re ready to release a new double album titled Dream Hunting in the Valley of the In-Between in May. What you’ll notice with the lead single “Cloud Nein” is that the band sounds as fresh and revitalized as you’d hope after such an absence.
The song has an immediacy to it. Going strong and up from the jump, the piano lead song has this honky cat vibe while a mix of choral backing vocals and lead vocals fill your ears with sound. The tone has the band sounding fresh and happy. The video features an older gentleman dancing to the music as he walks down the street. The lyrics are on the screen as well, while the joyous track plays out. The guitar that comes in on the song makes for a nice touch as well.
The video can be viewed above or on YouTube. The single can be streamed on all streaming sites. Dream Hunting in the Valley of the In-Between is ready to be preordered on multiple formats directly from Sub Pop ahead of its May 01 release. There are no announced shows for Man Man at this time, though that should change soon.
