Transcendent and sometimes wistful, the folk-pop of Weyes Blood (a.k.a. LA-based Natalie Mering) explores everything that drives us, divides us, and destroys us. This sounds like heavy stuff, but Mering is an effortless guide. Though burdened by doubt, she is also buoyed by hope — her music unfurling with stunning nuance and ease.
“Bob Seger meets Enya” is how she once described her work. When you consider Weyes Blood’s otherworldly expansiveness and hook-laden melodies, you realize that she isn’t exaggerating.
