Hear “The Dark Age” from Widowspeak’s Almanac (playing Kung Fu Necktie 1/23)

Brooklyn four-piece Widowspeak, gearing up for the release of their sophomore record Almanac later this month, are streaming their track “The Dark Age” via Soundcloud. “The Dark Age” follows up Widowspeak’s first single “The Ballad of the Golden Hour” with a definitively more somber turn from the band’s typical luminosity. Singer Molly Hamilton’s haunting vocals cry heartbreak, sweeping over flashy guitar riffs and a catchy, melodic beat. Widowspeak is playing at Kung Fu Necktie January 23rd; go here for information and tickets to the 21+ show, and listen to “The Dark Age” below.
