Chelsea Wolfe – “Carrion Flowers”

Chelsea Wolfe has been the reigning queen of spooky-sad songwriting for years now, and if “Iron Moon” and “Carrion Flowers” are at all indicative of what her forthcoming album Abyss will unleash, then it’s safe to say that Wolfe won’t be overthrown for a long time. Although her lyricism is often muted and abstract, the imagery that Wolfe’s songs evoke, particularly her song titles, relies on high-drama. Carrion is the rotting flesh of dead animals, thus, the title of this new single suggests a once lovely thing made putrid by decay. The song’s introductory beat ebbs like synaptic impulses, before Wolfe’s chanting matches its rumble. Her vocals don’t build before they crest a mountainous sonic cliff, tumbling off with an industrial torrent at about 1:45. Listen to “Carrion Flowers” and check out Wolfe’s tour dates below.
