Friday Fascination: Widowspeak

Back when We Are Hunted was one of my favorite music websites to visit in hopes of finding a gem or two - I stumbled across Widowspeak, a stellar pair of brunettes from Tacoma/Chicago. "Harsh Realm" was the track featured on WAH, and I immediately became fascinated with the two. 

Molly Hamilton's voice is borderline mesmerizing, and both of their albums are equally as impressive. Another standout from this band is their cover of Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game" when released as the B-side to the single "Gun Shy

"True Believer" is the first taste from their forthcoming EP titled The Swamps that will be released on October 29th via Brooklyn based label Captured Tracks!
