Here's a post I've been meaning to do for ages, beyond ages in fact. I went and saw Weyes Blood perform at The Lock Tavern back in June and was transfixed by a bewitching show that saw her, Natalie Mering, play solo and beguile with stark, haunting, mainly acoustic songs (others that echoed whilst played through her MacBook) that tinged in beautiful melancholy and vulnerability.
That’s summed up pretty nicely within Weyes Blood’s new track “Cardamom”, the first taken from a forthcoming four track EP Cardamom Times (due via Mexican Summer on October 9th). It delivers heartache within an enveloping atmosphere that’s both devastatingly sad and majestically pretty, wrapping you up with warmth and comfort and releasing all kinds of different emotions.
At that show, Natalie promised she’d be back in the UK before long. It cannot come soon enough (perhaps with a full band so we can witness that too?!).
