Take a Stroll in Windhand’s “Grey Garden”


Take a Stroll in Windhand’s “Grey Garden”Now three full albums into their career, Windhand firmly have their own thing. There’s something about their combo of doom, stoner and psychedelia that I find enchantingly original; when a Windhand song comes on you fucking KNOW it’s Windhand, right? Even if you’ve never heard the track before.

As Windhand get set to release their next album, yesterday we got its first single, “Grey Garden,” and from the moment that fuzz-drenched guitar kicks into the intro, YUP, there it is, Windhand! Dorthia Cottrell’s vocals, which come a bit later, are a huge part of that Windhand-ness, of course; calm and controlled, yet soulful and with just the right amount of grit. The rhythm section is aces, too, blissfully locked into the groove.

Check out “Grey Garden” below along with its Jordan Vance-directed video. Eternal Return comes out on October 5th via Relapse Records; pre-order here.
