Chelsea Wolfe

https://chelseawolfe.bandcamp.com/ California native Chelsea Wolfe has always embodied light and dark. Her music is a raw, dirging doom-folk with hints ofblackmetal, deepbluesand minimal synthesizer music, but it’s as prone to triumph as it is despair. Her voice is both hauntingandseemingly haunted, though whether by angels or demons is unclear. And her lyrics reflect an obsession not only withlife’smurkier moments, but the unlikely truths and beauty they so often reveal. It makes sense then that her influences runfromNick Cave, Vladimir Vysotsky and Selda Bagcan to Ayn Rand andIngmarBergm ...read more

https://chelseawolfe.bandcamp.com/ California native Chelsea Wolfe has always embodied light and dark. Her music is a raw, dirging doom-folk with hints ofblackmetal, deepbluesand minimal synthesizer music, but it’s as prone to triumph as it is despair. Her voice is both hauntingandseemingly haunted, though whether by angels or demons is unclear. And her lyrics reflect an obsession not only withlife’smurkier moments, but the unlikely truths and beauty they so often reveal. It makes sense then that her influences runfromNick Cave, Vladimir Vysotsky and Selda Bagcan to Ayn Rand andIngmarBergman, and even more so that she hails fromthewilder, woodsy northern part of her state. Wolfe’s hometown was a small unspecified burgamidst the trees, idyllic by dayandbegging exploration, but forbidding once the fog crept in. Her skewed romanticism beganearly. At 9, she started sneaking into her father’s home studio to record warped covers and goth-R&B originals. But growing up, she never shared her music. It wasn'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, Wolfereturnedhomeinspired.She began toting around an 8-track and recording as the mood hit, eventually winding up with thesongs thatwould become herstunning 2010debut, The Grime And The Glow. Described as both healing and harrowing,enchantingand narcotic, the album establishedWolfe as anelemental force on the rise. Just as telling were a pair of coversongs — thetimeless 'You Are My Sunshine', and a deep cut fromNorwegianmetal icon Burzum — that in her capable handsmanaged tosound equally burnt and terrifying. Drawn to Los Angeles’ unique mix ofgloss andgrit, she moved to the city latelast yearand recorded her second album, Ἀποκάλυψις (pronounced “apokalypsis”), out on PenduSoundRecordings 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
