Hailing from the East Anglian and Welsh wildlands, Wise Woman have roared onto the scene with their heady collision of lush vocal harmonies, tall tales and 90s girl power. Formed in the darkness of a pandemic winter, the band forged a sound built on a decade-long musical friendship, alongside years of individual collaborations with artists as varied as Anna Meredith, Mediaeval Baebes, the LSO, and starring roles in West End musicals. The result is a striking brand of string-infused, cinematic power folk, that’s been enchanting headline slots at UK folk institutions including Green Note and Folkroom.
Their debut release, Thread, arrived on the 28th November 2022. Already championed by BBC Radio’s Tony Fisher for its “incredible harmonies and haunting lyrics”, Thread is an unapologetic rallying call for the female in folk. Weaving through misogyny, magic and madness, the EP is a musical battle cry for all women to take what they deserve and roar into their own futures.
You can pre-order the whole EP now on Bandcamp.
