mp3: "Ophelia" - Pinkwench

Back in March, Pinkwench released a stunning first LP called Luna. Previously only available on digital formats, Crafted Sounds is set to give the album a physical release on August 11. While the entire album is currently available for streaming it's single "Ophelia" that sets the stage for what you should expect, and will likely leave you utterly dazzled. Their guitars are heavy and dark, proving thick enough for you to float through, rising above it all with the help of vocalist Sophie Alemi. You know the moments when you can watch from afar as a thunderstorm rolls in? The menacing, earth rattling noise, dark clouds pluming — it all eventually leads to a beautiful rainstorm. "Ophelia" is the musical equivalent of that.
