Chelsea Wolfe

California native Chelsea Wolfe has always embodied light and dark. Her music is a raw, dirging doom-folk with hints ofblackmetal, deepblues and minimal synthesizer music, but it’s as prone to triumph as it is despair. Her voice is both hauntingandseemingly haunted, thoughwhether by angels or demons is unclear. And her lyrics reflect an obsession not only withlife’smurkier moments, but the unlikely truths andbeauty they so often reveal.

California native Chelsea Wolfe has always embodied light and dark. Her music is a raw, dirging doom-folk with hints ofblackmetal, deepblues and minimal synthesizer music, but it’s as prone to triumph as it is despair. Her voice is both hauntingandseemingly haunted, thoughwhether by angels or demons is unclear. And her lyrics reflect an obsession not only withlife’smurkier moments, but the unlikely truths andbeauty they so often reveal. It makes sense then that her influences runfromNick Cave, Vladimir Vysotsky and Selda Bagcan to Ayn Rand andIngmar Bergman, and even more so that she hails fromthewilder, woodsy northern part of her state. Wolfe’s hometown was a smallunspecified burg amidst the trees, idyllic by dayandbegging exploration, but forbidding once the fog crept in. Her skewed romanticism beganearly. At 9, she startedsneakinginto her father’s home studio to record warped covers and goth-R&B originals. But growing up, she nevershared hermusic. Itwasn't until recently she considered making music for others to hear. After a stint abroad with a nomadic performance troupe playing cathedrals, basements and old nuclear plants, Wolfereturnedhome inspired.She began toting around an 8-track and recording as the mood hit, eventually winding up with thesongs thatwould become her stunning 2010debut, The Grime And The Glow. Described as both healing and harrowing,enchantingand narcotic, the album established Wolfe as anelemental force on the rise. Just as telling were a pair of coversongs — thetimeless 'You Are My Sunshine', and a deep cut from Norwegianmetal icon Burzum — that in her capable handsmanaged tosound equally burnt and terrifying. Drawn to Los Angeles’ unique mix of gloss andgrit, she moved to the city latelast yearand recorded her second album, Ἀποκάλυψις (pronounced “apokalypsis”), out on Pendu SoundRecordings in2011. Mostrecently, Chelsea Wolfe’s name exploded in the music world after pop artist Richard Phillips used her song 'Moses'inhisnewest art-film starring Sasha Grey which premiered at the Venice Biennale in June of this year. « hide
