Weyes Blood (US)

Futuristic and vintage

Say their name –borrowed from the title of Flannery O’Connor’s first novel– and fill your mouth with oes. Let yourself be swayed by Andromeda, the gem that was the first single from Titanic Rising, her fourth album, on which Natalie Mering asserts that she wants –and manages to do- to sound futuristic and vintage at the same time, with her church choir trained voice, and her creative freedom let loose on the underground pop scene of Los Angeles. Do you remember her EP Myths 002 with Ariel Pink? Sunken like the Titanic in seas of soft pop with Americana roots and oceans of psychedelia: Weyes Blood’s songs will bring you back to life.
