Emily Wryn, who caught The Indy’s attention with her haunting voice on 2012’s Head On Straight EP, has a new album due out in July, and it’s a special one, indeed. Tactile and intimate, with dissonant strings lurking in the background, the carefully crafted Feral weaves a richly cold world of dark and delicate beauty. Songs such as the wintry whisper of “River” and the gravely sparse “Whippoorwill” recall tragic tale-tellers like Cat Power and Marissa Nadler, while more up-tempo moments like “Witness” add backbone amid the misty mire. Beautifully sung and masterfully produced, Wryn’s debut album sees the Lompoc singer/songwriter as one of our region’s strongest voices and conjurers of atmospheres. See her at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club in June.
