New Release & Tour: Wildwood Kin – Beauty In Your Brokenness

Following another busy summer of festivals, including a performance at Glastonbury, family acoustic-rock trio Wildwood Kin continue to build momentum for the release of their self-titled sophomore album on 4th October, by sharing their second track from it – ‘Beauty in Your Brokenness’

Take a listen below…

Each track on the new album is built around a message that Wildwood Kin can get behind.The first track they previewed from ‘Wildwood Kin’ was the beautifully sombre, ‘Never Alone’, which was produced and co-written with Ed Harcourt. ‘Never Alone’ tackled a deeply personal subject and became a message to anyone feeling as isolated as Meg Loney’s brother, who sadly committed suicide. The stunning video that accompanied it complemented the song and lyrics perfectly, and was filmed in the West Pennine Moorlands

The new single ‘Beauty in Your Brokenness’ is an intimate acoustic lament that talks about self-acceptance. The track was inspired by the Japanese art of ‘Kintsugi’ – the idea of something becoming more beautiful for having been damaged or broken

Beth explains,“Have you heard about kintsugi? It is a Japanese art where they take broken pottery and put it back together using lacquer, dusted with gold and silver powder, to make a unique piece of art with intricate patterns only the brokenness creates. It is a reminder that our imperfections, mishaps and tragedies shape us and make us who we are”

“‘Beauty In Your Brokenness’ is a message for us, too,” Emillie continues. “We’re not natural performers. We all think we’re not good enough, or confident enough to do this. But then people come to us after shows and say they liked our most awkward and weird moments, so it seems the mishaps make us relatable. Being who you are is the best approach to life”

Completed by Meg’s cousins, the Key sisters Emillie (guitar) and Beth (bouzouki), Wildwood Kin are a band of equals with each member contributing equally

Wildwood Kin continue playing festivals this summer before preparing for their mammoth 17-date headline tour this autumn. The tour kicks off in Norwich on 6th November at Waterfront Studio and includes a London date at Omeara on 11th November…
