And In Darkness, Hearts Aglow by Weyes Blood
Natalie Mering, AKA Weyes Blood has released her 5th album And in Darkness, Hearts Aglow. The album is an absolute soundscape of emotion and baroque-pop poetry. Throughout the album, Mering’s lyrics are deep as she sings about the human experience, longing, and the condition of the world. The track “Grapevine” Mering begins the song by softly singing over an acoustic guitar, but as the song progresses, it emerges into a beautifully powerful ballad of uncertainty and a disintegrated relationship. The song “Children of the Empire” incorporates haunting backing vocals, clanging bells and an organ. This album definitely pulls on the heart strings, so go ahead, cry it out.
