Clocking in at a svelte and efficient three songs, The Black Moon is a ferocious and ethereal EP interspersed with guitar crunch. It’s full of the atmospheric shoegaze touches and dreamy interludes that balance Holy Fawns’ harsher side. They punctuate the melodic moments with throat-shredding screams, feedback, and fierce guitar riffs. Candy is full of heavy and bruising riffs with gorgeous quiet moments seeded throughout. Tethered is an ambient instrumental piece. And the seven-minute Blood Pact is a journey of near-mystical beauty and windswept bleakness.
