With the release date of Mirage Rock drawing near, Band of Horses have unveiled yet another new track. “Slow Cruel Hands Of Time” is a mellow, gentle song, where the sweet-sounding trademark harmonies are really allowed stand out and shine. Its subdued nature reminds me why I once likened them to Fleet Foxes, but the song’s ’70s folk-pop leanings seem to mostly pay homage to the classic stylings of Crosby, Stills and Nash and Simon & Garfunkel.

Mirage Rock is the band’s fourth full-length album and it comes out September 18th via Columbia Records.
