Weyes Blood (2017)
Santa Monica, CA
Singer/songwriter/producer Natalie Mering’s work as Weyes Blood is a musical exploration of the AM dial. She channels inspiration from ‘60s and ‘70s Laurel Canyon soft rock and turns it into yearning, folkloric pop that is rooted in experimentalism, but contemporary and wistfully nostalgic in equal measure. 2016 was a breakout year for Mering, which saw her collaborating on an EP with Ariel Pink and culminated with the acclaimed release of Front Row Seat to Earth.
