Answer honestly – there have been times when you suspected your girlfriend of being evil, demonically possessed or a witch. Brooklyn-based folk artist Peter Squires knows how you feel – in the aptly-named video for Witch, he accuses his girlfriend of being a witch.
Witch is from Squires’ latest album, Woe Is Me. I’ve been listening to some of the tunes today, and there’s a raw energy in his acoustic work that he couples with humour in his lyrics. Here’s a bit more about Peter:
When you combine honest lyrics, raw acoustic strummings and straightforward vocals ripe with sadness and humor – you get Brooklyn-based Peter Squires’ new album. Woe Is Me features urban tales of heartbreak and betrayal set against carefully stripped-down folk songs full of raw emotion. Delicate layers of guitar and minor percussive flairs create a minimalist sound with enduring beauty.
