Weyes Blood

The fairytale world of Weyes Blood – pronounced Wise Blood - is ready to open up to a wider audience. Her new, fifth album ‘And In The Darkness, Hearts Aglow’ (2022) is for young and old, everything and everyone. The ancient myths and modern tales touch on deep themes but also allow space for dreaming. And everything has an aura of timelessness, like the work of Kate Bush, who she resembles on stage in a somewhat awkward way. The American refers to her shows as “music to cry to”. Although being sad really doesn’t hurt at all. Her voice is the most remarkable element. It puts us in mind of female luminaries of the 1970s like Karen Carpenter, Carole King and Joni Mitchell. She’s keen to add Enya to the list too. Pure beauty.
