HNY: Sacred Fire 7"

HNY: Sacred Fire 7″

I was late to the party with Social Junk, not getting into them until after they broke up, and now it appears that I’ve repeated myself, because former SJ member Heather Nicole Young has retired her solo alias HNY, and this is the moniker’s final release. It is frightening and beautiful. “Sacred Fire” has absolutely charred guitars and percussive pounding, plus layers of haunting, shivering vocals. “Ghost” isn’t as noisy, but it’s still ominous, squirming, and of course spectral. Her vocals are a bit more ethereal and nearly tip into a new dimension of otherworldliness, but then it’s over too quickly.
