London’s Elegant Hotel hosted the recent Sony showcase for folk/rock trio Wildwood Kin to preview four tracks from their second album, Wildwood Kin, out on October 4th.
Sisters Beth and Emillie Key and cousin Meg Loney, all dressed in red and black, were joined for the session by a guitarist/bassist to add depth to the sound, according to a Sony executive.
“We can’t wait to release this album in October. We’re stoked.” enthused Meg Loney. The trademark harmonies shine as brightly as ever and there’s a rocky edge with Loney’s enthusiastic drum work.
Tracks played were Headed For The Water, Never Alone about the solidarity you feel for someone that has been through a hard time, Time Has Come and Beauty In Your Brokenness, inspired by Kintsugi – the Japanese method of mending broken pottery with gold, showing that something broken can be put back together and look even more beautiful.
The trio then stepped forward to perform a beautiful version of their song The Valley with no amplification and minimal guitar from Emillie Key. Three to watch.
