After the release of their album Plum, Widowspeak released a new EP entitled Honeychurch. The duo made a version of Dire Straits’ “Romeo and Juliet,”
At the core of Widowspeak’s allure is the creative chemistry between singer-songwriter Molly Hamilton and guitarist Robert Earl Thomas. Sonically, the band is perennially anchored by Hamilton’s honeyed vocals and Thomas’s warm, expansive arrangements—references to 90’s dream pop, 60’s psychedelia, and a certain unshakeable Pacific-Northwestness. It’s comfortable, lived-in: humble in structure, heavy on mood.
Widowspeak‘s sixth album “The Jacket” will be released 3/11 on Captured Tracks.
