If garage rock from the mid-90s is your kind of thing, then you, my friend, are going to love Sindri Eldon. Although the artist may be in his late twenties, he channels his inner cynical teenage self through his music, as can be clearly heard in “Honeydew.” The lyrics focus on a quintessential teenage problem: whether to make someone feel better by saying you love them when you don’t. The sound may be garage-y, but the arrangement is anything but sloppy, as the ever-so-slightly lazy bass, lightly distorted guitars and snappy drums all get a chance to shine before coming together in the chorus.

Take a trip down memory lane, and check out the song’s video, too, as it is absolutely smashing in its early-MTV-esque purposeful amateurishness. It also portrays Sindri in his three true forms: shaved, stubbly and bearded.
