WILDWOD KIN – SINGLE REVIEW

Wildwood Kin – Warrior Daughter 
Wildwood Kin - Warrior Daughter


Release Date: 2nd September 2016

It took me so long to finally see these talented ladies live but I’ve been in love with their music ever since that wondrous night. So, I was excited beyond words to hear that the Exeter trio had a new single coming out and that single is ‘Warrior Daughter’. Excited? You should be. The furious acoustic guitars and nearly-Spanish hand clapped rhythms provide the perfect spiky platform upon which to pour the beautiful three-part harmonies that Meghann, Beth and Emilie produce. What really excites me about this single is the step up it takes from their previous material. Sure, the First Aid Kit meets Sound of the Sirens acoustic-folk-pop stylings are still there for all to see but there’s a harder, steelier edge in there that is reminiscent of Brother & Bones at their feisty best. Then, as the song builds to a chaotic crescendo, you can’t help but imagine fans of artists like Passenger getting switched on to these three, especially if some savvy DJ did a powerful dance remix of this tune to get it out to a wider audience. In the meantime, Wildwood Kin are taking their powerful mix of melodies and rhythms all around the country so there’s no excuse not to catch them now and, trust me, you won’t regret it.
