Brooklyn’s Widowspeak will play the festival celebrating the five-year anniversary of their excellent label, Captured Tracks, next month, but before that arrives, they’re dropping a new single. “True Believer” is pastel-hued, heavily drugged shoegaze-folk. It’s truly, sweepingly lovely. People would go insane if Mazzy Star dropped a new track tomorrow, but nothing Mazzy Star might do in 2013 could be more beautiful than what Widowspeak are actually doing right here. Thus, people should be going insane about this. Listen.
“True Believer” will appear on Widowspeak’s The Swamps EP, out 10/29 via Captured Tracks.
