Weyes Blood: Hang On / Some Winters

16.9.14



Natalie Merins is Weyes Blood whose 2011 album The Outside Room on Not Not Fun earned her a spot in the psych-ethereal-experimental folk world and put her on the map.


Three years later, her new album, The Innocents, due on October 21st sounds even more promising, judging from the couple of tracks that are already out there. First there is Hang On, a well produced folk song, reminiscent of the genre’s heyday in the 1960s and then there is Some Winters, a dreamy piano folk ballad that feels almost otherworldly.





Facts about Weyes Blood
