Widowspeak‘s music hangs in the air like a thick fog: it’s mysterious, heavy and a bit haunting.  Guiding us through the mist is Molly Hamilton, who sings with a breathy bittersweetness while fuzzy guitars twang and cymbals subtly splash over every track.  The trio, originally from Tacoma, Washington, relocated to Brooklyn and released their self-titled debut album in August of 2011. The group has a gift for creating songs with a hypnotic aura shrouded in darkness while being methodically paced and yet slightly psychedelic.

Best Tracks:

Gun Shy‘s thick guitars are reminiscent of a showdown in the old west but have an inexplicable shift in emotion as Hamilton’s soft yearning dominates the chorus.

In the Pines is draped in nocturnal moods with a feeling of being surrounded by dark skies, towering trees and a fearful curiosity that pushes you forward despite hesitation.

Hard Times may be one of the more pop-oriented tracks with a conventional feel due to the catchy hook, sticky guitar riff, and sugary vocals.

When & Where:

Widowspeak is a calming collection of songs for lonely, enigmatic nights and is the perfect album to get lost in with no intention of finding your way out.
