fall tour: Widowspeak

widowspeak

Indie rock band Widowspeak kicks off a fall tour in support of new album– Expect the Best [Captured Tracks]–out August 25, 2017.  The band recently released a swirling single called “Dog.” Widowspeak’s Molly Hamilton told NPR the song “Dog” is, “about the compulsion to move on from things and places, even people, when you’re not necessarily ready to. Sometimes, I get caught up in ‘the grass is always greener’ mentalities, or cling to an idea that ‘I’d be happy if…’ and then make a drastic change. Then, inevitably, I feel restless a few months later and it starts again.” read NPR interview here
