NYC Artists on the rise: Weyes Blood

NYC Artists on the rise: Weyes Blood

Playing a unique blend of quiet folk and medieval music, Natalie Mering releases her music under the name Weyes Blood (pronounced like "wise blood"). With a voice that echoes masters from the early 1960’s folk scene, Natalie's music has a soulful resonance that at times peaks in religious chanting. Traditional acoustic guitars are offset with distant rattle-chain percussion, echoed thumps and ethereal keyboards. She previously added her rare voice to notable works like Ariel Pink’s 2012 4AD release “Mature Themes,” (singing back up on the song “Early Birds of Babylon”), and she’s also accompanied the Haunted Graffiti live on tour. Recently signed to Mexican Summer, Weyes Blood has a new record in the works for 2014 that promises a further evolution to her uncommon sound. - Dave Cromwell
