WOMB

Day 11 of NZ Music Month is the lucid “Cosmic Dreaming” from the innermost cosmos of Womb.

Womb is part of a healthy Wellington underground folk scene. The scene loosely aggregated around low-key Wellington label Sonorous Circle is not your everyday, traditional folk. It’s odd-folk, weird-folk, Gothic-folk, cosmic-folk…

“Cosmic Dreaming” is a great starting point to explore the self title debut album by Womb (Charlotte Forrester).

There’s a hint of the elegiac melancholy of Sufjan Stephens’ early music about this song and the way it drifts gently upon melodic waves of spectral voices over sparse acoustic instrumentation.
