Young Prisms: Honeydew

San Francisco shoegazers, Young Prisms, announce their first full length in nearly ten years, and deliver the fantastic shoegaze pop bliss that is the lead single, Honeydew. Drifter will be out in its entirety on March 25th, 2022 via Fire Talk, produced by Shaun Durkan (Weekend, Soft Kill).

Starring vocalist Stefanie Hodapp, the accompanying clip to Honeydew was directed by the band's own Giovanni Betteo, and it cites influence from the filmmaking genius of Michelangelo Antonioni and Jean-Luc Godard. Betteo explains: "I always wanted to make a video that was focused on restraint especially with choreography being key and shock so prevalent. It feels like a bit of a contradiction for someone, who can't seem to record a song without an excessive amount of filters and effects, to make a video that is in black and white and wholly driven by minimalism.

Hodapp comments on the new single and the inspiration behind it: "Growing up, my grandmother would tell me that honeydew was her favorite melon. I was never fully convinced. I usually preferred cantaloupe and quite frankly thought she was full of shit because everyone knows cantaloupe tastes better. Clearly this was more of a pitch to her unwilling granddaughter. 'Honeydew' (the song) is about looking back on life and wishing for more, as if it wasn’t right or good enough. Hoping for a time machine to change history. Somehow that stubborn grandmother analogy makes sense now. A honeydew life won't ever be a cantaloupe life, but it's okay and can be just as satisfying if you accept it for what it is."
