Widowspeak is a shoegaze band that formed in Brooklyn, New York City. The band was formed in 2010 by Molly Hamilton and her long-time friend, Michael Stasiak. Robert Earl Thomas and Pamela Garavano-Coolbaugh completed the band and began touring for their first album. Hamilton and Thomas kept the group going after the other two members left in 2012. While both members play guitar, Hamilton brings the vocals in. Willy Muse on bass and James Jano on drums complete the group when they perform.
The band has released three albums and one EP. Their latest album, All Yours, was out in 2015. American Horror Story featured their single “Harsh Realm” during one of the episodes. They are signed to Captured Tracks, which have also released all their work so far. Widowspeak describes their music as cowboy grunge, it’s definitely noticeable through the twangy southern guitar riffs in some of their songs.
