Chelsea Wolfe - She Reaches Out To She Reaches Out To She

Loma Vista/Concord

Pitchfork: Album Review (7.6)

“Paired against breathy vocals at once angelic and ghostly, the dense electronic clash of ‘Tunnel Lights’ comes as the latest progression of Wolfe’s increasing interest in avant-garde and industrial rock.” — FADER

“With each passing week, it’s becoming more and more obvious that Chelsea Wolfe’s forthcoming LP, She Reaches Out To She Reaches Out To She, is set to be one of the best records of 2024’s first few months.” — Paste – This Week’s Best New Songs

“The goth crooner Chelsea Wolfe conjures a thick atmosphere on ‘Dusk,’ …‘Dusk’ is centered around a slow, methodical beat, murky guitar chords and Wolfe’s breathy, eerie voice. ‘I will go through fire to get to you,’ she sings with a haunting determination.” — The New York Times

“‘Tunnel Lights’ harnesses Wolfe’s cinematic scope with a composition that translates as both ethereal and eerie in one fell swoop.” — Knotfest

“The genre-defying ‘Dusk’ is one of her more elaborate recordings to date, a culmination of her career thus far.” — Consequence, Heavy Song of the Week

“On ‘Dusk,’ Chelsea Wolfe pushes Portishead’s gothic trip-hop to new doom-laden extremes.” — Stereogum, Best Songs Of The Week

“Like an industrial version of trip hop” — Metal Injection

“a dramatic, clattering trip-hop tune” — Revolver

“[‘Whispers in the Echo Chamber’] thumps and seethes with the industrial rage of latter-day Nine Inch Nails, though Wolfe’s vocals are more lighter and ominous like they were written with a crow’s feather.” — The FADER

“Above a throbbing bassline, [Chelsea Wolfe] intones about phenomena ‘beyond reality’ in between pecks of earth-rattling drum detonations. By the end, a chugging guitar riff is raining hellfire while Wolfe chants ‘more, more, more’ like a shrieking worshipper offering everything to some dark deity.” — Revolver, on “Whispers in the Echo Chamber”

She Reaches Out To She Reaches Out To She is a powerfully cathartic statement about cutting ties and an important reminder that healing is cyclical, not a simple linear process. The liminal, the in-between, and the unseen are recurring characters on She Reaches Out. As Wolfe puts it, “like the dark moon, that void space can feel unpredictable and looming, but it also holds so much potential, mystery, and excitement.”

Produced by David Andrew Sitek of TV On The Radio and mixed by Shawn Everett (Slowdive, SZA, The War On Drugs), She Reaches Out was recorded by Derek Coburn at Federal Prism Studios and mastered by Heba Kadry. Supporting Wolfe throughout is the core band of multi-instrumentalist Ben Chisholm, drummer Jess Gowrie, and guitarist Bryan Tulao. There’s an intimate, ASMR-like quality to Wolfe’s vocals on the album – nothing feels straightforward, left to chance, or as expected. As Wolfe says, “This album demanded to be lived.”
