Reviews Triple J Unearthed - Australia


 dsraffaele 12 Feb, 2010

These young girls with full-grown expressions are of extraordinary talent. Their haunting folk originals are refreshing from these new sort of hushed sounds we hear in modern folk music, such as Iron and Wine or Bon Iver. She of the Woods to me is the soul that takes me back to old school folk with rock ‘n roll poetry. These girls can lead a new folk generation with traditional styles. Well done.

I have gone to about five She of The Woods gigs and have also seen them busk in Manly from time to time. Their music has a profound essence to it that penetrates your core, making the lyrics suddenly become your own hidden thoughts put up to a microphone. Matilda has such an amazing and timeless voice. She takes you back to the roots of blues yet remains contemporary in her innocence giving the music a spirit which births a very warm and familiar experience. Presley is unbelievably talented- a genius musician- and her ability to play drums, guitar, back-up vocals and a harmonica simultaneously says enough about how amazing this two-piece band truly is. Seek them out! Can't wait to see you guys at a future Big Day Out.

With influences stemming from alternative blues, roots and freak folk, She Of The Woods (Matilda Stephanie - (Vocals) and Presley Joy - (foot percussion and guitar)) is a sister act native to Manly's shore. Their tender, devout and insightful performances lead to great popular demand in the area and widespread online success when they started out last year, burgeoning from city streets to leading Sydney venues. 2010 will now see the girls as they launch their intimate five track EP titled 'Elegy for a Bell', soon to chase with a full mid-year debut not to be missed. Forthright and poetic, original songs hunt after deep love and loss, submerged in reflection and tenebrosity, resurfaced with breaths of sunlit acoustic melodies.
