And that is the key to Wildwood Kin. They may have an unusual gift for harmony, and a way with evergreen folk rock melodies, but ultimately they’re three normal, relatable young women finding their way in the world and dealing with the same challenges, triumphs and tragedies as the rest of us.
“We aren’t similar at all… but in a way we are,” Emillie concludes. “We’re family, we bicker, but we share the same sense of humour and that’s our saving grace. And we love each other. Whatever happens, nobody will walk away and never see the others again.”
That connection, acceptance and, ultimately, love is captured on the beautifully reflective second album by Wildwood Kin. It is a tonic for our times.
