True Widow: “Skull Eyes”

On its self-titled debut in 2008, True Widow turned heads with its blend of down-tuned shoegaze and stoner rock, somehow straddling the line between doom aesthetics and pop sensibilities.

The trio’s second album and first for Kemado, As High as the Highest Heavens…, is a new dose of drawn-out melodies, fuzzy guitars, and hypnotizing harmonies. That last aspect comes equally from guitarist DH Phillips (formerly of Slowride) and bassist Nicole Estill, whose echoing vocals ensure that you experience the music at a comfortably slow pace.
