Wildwood Kin

Album Review: Wildwood Kin by Wildwood Kin (8/10)

"This generation's West Country moors-based Wilson Phillips"

The lush, soulful acoustic melodies and soaring vocal harmonies of UK alt-folk trio Wildwood Kin—and the transcendent chemistry of Meg Loney and her cousins, sisters Emillie (guitar) and Beth (bouzouki, keyboards)—have earned critical comparisons to everyone from Simon & Garfunkel and Fleetwood Mac to Mumford & Sons. I cheerfully add “this generation’s West Country moors-based Wilson Phillips” to the praise, albeit with more grit and a deeper social consciousness. Their second album is driven by high impact vocals, dreamy acoustic grace, bright pop/rock textures and powerful, personal yet universal storylines.
