Biography

Brooklyn, New York, United States (2010 – present)

Widowspeak is a Brooklyn, New York, United States-based quartet that play hazy atmospheric and , formed in 2010.

There are aspects of the band’s sound - abrasive guitar hooks, immediate drumming, and incessant codas - that speak to living in a big city. But there’s also a dreary sparseness, a David Lynch-esque darkness, culled from the other members’ native Washington.

The band’s skeletal sound began to take shape, with Robert’s rust-belt guitar parts lending a restless, sinister edge to Molly’s subdued melodies and soft vocal style. Writing became a collaborative effort, and Widowspeak racked up an arsenal of songs. By fall the trio had recorded a six-track cassette using only a built-in laptop microphone and Garageband. The self-released October Tape, as it was called, fell into the hands of Brooklyn’s Captured Tracks. Weeks later, after only their sixth show, Widowspeak recorded the 7” single Harsh Realm, in anticipation of a full LP.

Their eponymous debut LP was released on August 9th, 2011 on Captured Tracks.
