Young singer-songwriter, Mirel Wagner
makes ominous blues folk stripped bare. You don’t want to listen to Wagner’s stories, filled with death, self-destruction, sin, deep lakes and dark woods, alone in the dark. The soundscape of Mirel’s quiet singing and a single acoustic guitar is wonderfully bare and intensive. Wagner has no doubt been influenced by Hope Sandoval
, Nick Cave
and PJ Harvey
, but doesn’t sound exactly like any of them.
