Widowspeak – Breadwinner

After a long absence, Widowspeak have shared a new song, and video. Breadwinner is the first we’ve heard from the duo since 2017’s Expect the Best album and is a lovely excursion into shimmering reverbed guitars and mellow, layered vocals. Despite the song’s breathy, lush poignancy, there is a stark message in there about the dreary monotony of unfulfilling work, with Molly Hamilton’s vocals making … Continue reading Widowspeak – Breadwinner

New Video: LEECHES – All Of The People

Formed in a summer haze back in 2016, pysch-trio LEECHES meld infectious garage rock with pop hooks and fuzzy alt-rock.
