Glamour Magazine Discovers the Beauty that is Chelsea Wolfe in Today’s Morning Jam
Darlings, meet Chelsea Wolfe, and get ready to fall in love!
(Isn’t she lovely? I especially adore her jaded prom-queen-esque scowl in this photo.)
The Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter hit it big with critics with last year’s darkly excellent Apokalypsis, a second album about revelations and “seeing the truth,” as she puts it. I have been following Chelsea for a while, and she is an artist committed to her craft, which makes her hard to describe genre-wise; her music is best painted by mood, using broad strokes. Chelsea’s songs (and that crystalline voice!) are hypnotic and deeply emotional: despair and hope, confusion and clarity, joy and sorrow, all lie within her often-cinematic arrangements . (So far, she’s garnered comparisons from legends like Nick Cave and PJ Harvey to contemporaries like Zola Jesus.)
Check out new single, “The Way We Used To,” from her all-acoustic LP Unknown Rooms: A Collection of Acoustic Songs, out October 16 on Sargent House. It keeps apace with hints of gospel and rootsy folk, also some gorgeous swooping harmonies throughout — in under three minutes; lookee there! — and that’s why it’s Glamour HQ’s Morning Jam. Below!
