Katherine McBeth/Wild Spells
Labeled as “Doom-filled witch pop,” Wild Spells
combines soulful lyrics with textured instrumental to create intense melodies. Its sound ranges from metal to folk and draws on topics of pain, self and loss. Formed in 2015, the band released its first album, This Is the Way We Fend for Ourselves
, in March 2019. Every track packs a wallop, with beautifully sorrowful vocals matched with chill-inducing guitar and bass. The first track on the album, “The Storm," is six minutes of melancholic music that evokes stirring feelings of love and pain. The band creates its own genre of music by pulling on the intimacy of folk and heightening it with the thrumming passion of the instruments. The four band members, Eric Larson, Erin Nelson, Zack Evans and Kory Parsley, are experts in creating songs that evoke feelings that cannot be put into words.
