There is a stately magnificence about this album which sees Weyes Blood building ornate orchestral pop symphonies for listeners to drift on, as captivating layers of strings and synths swirl to dramatic effect.

Weyes Blood has come up for air with her fourth album Titanic Rising – a poetic image, considering the album artwork shows her submerged in water.

It’s a dignified and celestial body of work which has us floating in the Atlantic. Look out for Andromeda and Movies to transport you to another world, but from start to finish, it’s a beaut.

“Movies” taken from Titanic Rising, was released April 5th, 2019 on Sub Pop Records. http://www.weyesblood.com

Weyes Blood aka Natalie Mering  is now four albums into her career. This is an excellent starting point for the uninitiated. Echoes of George Harrison, Carpenters, Beach Boys, Todd Rundgren, Philip Glass, and even Enya (in the voice layering department, she admits) all come ringing out of various songs.

This album could have happily lived in any decade across the past 50 years, yet it still feels so connected to today. By processing her memories, ideals, and other layers of her subconscious, she lands on at outlook that only spells survival and strength to me. It’s a beautiful record, in all senses. Beautifully strong, vulnerable, open, reassuring, and to pun on her name, wise.
