Experimental Dublin artist Hilary Woods recently announced a limited number of U.S. Fall Tour dates for this summer, New York, Chicago, and, yes, Philadelphia’s First Unitarian Side Chapel among those few stops. Woods’ quiet, ethereal sound has been described by critics as “bewitching,” “ominous and dreamlike.” After reading about her solo performances, looping piano melodies and layering vocals throughout the set, the closest live experience I can think to relate this to is harpist Mary Lattimore’s. The Side Chapel at the Church is in for an especially entrancing night this September when the Irish artist performs in Philadelphia for the first time.

Woods’ debut LP, Colt, was released earlier this year on regarded label Sacred Bones, known for their release of dark, genre-pushing artists by the likes of John Carpenter, Blanck Mass, and Zola Jesus, among others. Colt follows up two previously released EP’s from Woods.

Tickets for the Side Chapel show go on sale this Friday, August 10th at 10:00 a.m. on R5’s website and our own Concert Calendar. Check out the lead-track to Colt below.
