'The Swamps' is the newest release from American swoon lords Widowspeak. It arrives as bridge between the duo's sophomore album, 'Almanac,' and an as yet untitled third studio record. Here the band's characteristic sonic landscapes, haunting harmonies, and layers of delicate guitar-work usher in a new chapter in their dark and dreamy catalog. Inspired by the light-choked wetlands of its title, 'The Swamps' brims with songs about fears of stagnation and the pitfalls of nostalgia, but never relinquishes Widowspeak's melodic optimism.
