A FEW WORDS
“’Ten Songs’ is a gorgeous infusion of sweet yearnings wrapped in a magical and mystical cloak. Bowers’s gentle musings are evocative and thrilling; the sounds crystalline, delicate, and yet antithetically draped over a steely spine. This is an album full of an inherent grace, poised and shimmering.” Backseat Mafia – Top 50 albums and singles 2021
The release of T. Wilds’ stunning album Ten Songs last October saw the Blue Mountains’ indie-folk artist garner rave reviews and feature in a bunch of music critics’ Top 10 Albums of 2021 lists.
Featuring lead singles I Swim, Curious Moon and Wounded Knees, all of which picked up airplay around the country, Curious Moon now gets to shine again with a remix of the mesmerising gothic-folk track, thanks to Multi Award-winning producer Matt Fell (Troy Cassar-Daly, Fanny Lumsden).
The ‘Astral Mix‘ has a slightly bigger and more ethereal feel to the album version, and it is also a good introduction for more things T. Wilds to come. ‘Curious Moon (Astral Mix)’ is a mesmeric journey that touches on goth-folk, with haunting guitar lines behind T. Wilds’ melancholic vocals.
The impact of T. Wilds’ voice is immediate, definitive, distinctive, delicate yet powerful, and instantly captivating. On ‘Ten Songs’ her voice provides the perfect vehicle for her ever-expanding catalogue of songs that are wise and curious, day-dreamy and evocative. She is influenced by the beauty of her surroundings and the natural world.
Landing somewhere between the sophisticated soul of Sade, the wistful yearning of Nico, and the country-tinged soul of Gillian Welch, T. Wilds’ music continues to evolve into its own genre of delicate indie-goth-folk.
Previously her inclination to collaborate has seen her work alongside international artists such as Howe Gelb, Tortoise members, and Prefuse 73, but these days she crafts her recordings with fellow Blue Mountains resident Matt Toohey, who adds light and shade with minimal electric guitar atmospherics to accompany the classic simplicity of her acoustic guitar.
T. Wilds’ stripped-back live performances have seen her impress audiences in support slots for the likes of Cat Power, Wil Oldham, The Books, Kristin Hersch, My Brightest Diamond, Clare Bowditch, and many others.
