Headed for the Water Tour 2019

The first thing that strikes you about the second album by Wildwood Kin, self-titled because it captures the band’s artistic vision so completely, is just how natural it sounds. The voices of three young women harmonise effortlessly, there are shades of Simon & Garfunkel, Rumours-era Fleetwood Mac and the churchy cadences of the first Fleet Foxes album in the beautifully gentle folk rock melodies, and lyrics address profound themes like love, loss and spirituality in an unforced fashion. But above all, there is a spirit to the record that is as wild and free as the West Country moors Emillie Key, her younger sister Beth, and their cousin Meghann Loney grew up on.

“Bucolic folk, Fleetwood Mac-like harmonies, hints of Fleet Foxes’ desolate spectral acoustica, echoes of Ben Howard’s richly textured but ramshackle sparseness and a love of Mumfords-like propulsion and explosiveness”
