SMALL BLACK

Gracing the cover of Brooklyn band Small Black's new record, a mysterious woman walks alone on the dunes at dusk, amid pockmarked sand. She's the subject of a found photo, one of many rescued with the warmth of a blow dryer and a fireplace, by singer Josh Hayden Kolenik after Hurricane Sandy flooded his family's Long Island home. The faded image offers clues and invites viewers to construct their own narrative, one that escapes even the picture's taker, Kolenik's father.

WATCH // Small Black Plays “On The Mountain” Sessions For The Wild Honey Pie

Small Black joined The Wild Honey Pie crew up on a mountain to record a couple songs and today they shared the videos from those sessions. Watch out for Small Black, they’re pool sharks.

See the videos for “No Stranger”, “Sophie”, and for the first time ever online, “Reconstruction” above, on our YouTube, or on The Wild Honey Pie’s site.

If you missed it a few weeks ago, you can preview the new album with track “Lines of Latitude” with guest vocalist Frankie Rose above or on our Soundcloud.

Real People will be available on vinyl and digital formats on April 1st (March 31st in Europe). You can pre-order the new album from SC Distribution.
