Widowspeak’s new track True Believer is probably going to make them the stars of Captured Tracks’ upcoming five year blow-out, the CT5 Festival, happening at the end of the summer. If you’re going, wear cute shoes you won’t mind looking at, ’cause if Widowspeak performs this new little number, you’re gonna be cajoled into their candied, jaded, floor-staring reverie.
Singer Molly Hammilton leans into her inner Mazzy Star on True Believer, and accentuates her junked-up bedroom-pop vocal range. Widowspeak has always flirted with shoegaze-folk, but now it sounds like they’re going steady—maybe walking on a beach somwhere. True Believer is a sweet-talker that’s warming us up for Widowspeak’s upcoming EP, The Swamps, out this October. Check it out below.
