Guitarist Michael Hentz and drummer Jacquelyn Sky blend their voices soothingly as lead guitarist David Greening and bassist Abraham Rodriguez-Smith stir together slow-moving passages on Secret Flowers’ 2019 single “In Waves.” The L.A. group’s new single, “Uneven Path,” is adorned with shimmering, watery guitar echoes as Hentz croons in a soft murmur against the icing of Sky’s breathy harmonies. While the song progresses unhurriedly, the guitars build with a bit of psychedelic intensity even as Sky’s and Hentz’s vocals remain airy and restrained underneath. Taos artist Marissa Macias and Mirror Travel’s Lauren Green also trade in slow and shadowy spaces as Tan Cologne on their upcoming release, Cave Vaults on the Moon in New Mexico. The dreamily unwinding title track wallows in a sea of reverb, much like Tan Cologne’s gentle, enigmatic hymn to a “Strange God.”
