Widowspeak is a quartet from Tacoma & Chicago that are announcing their new album Expect The Best August 25 via Captured Tracks! They used to be a duo and their latest work was 2015’s album All Yours. They emit dreamy, heavenly yet dark, cowboy grudge and shoegazing compositions with influences from The Velvet Underground, the Cranberries, George Harrison, Ennio Morricone among others.
“Dog,” the first single from the band’s new third album, Expect The Best resembles Mazzy Star’s vibes and its fluorescent video fits very well with the atmosphere of the track.
Frontwoman Molly Hamilton wrote the songs while she was living in Tacoma, Washington, and the band recorded them with Swans/Real Estate producer Kevin McMahon.
