Wildwood Kin announce new single ‘Warrior Daughter’ out September 2nd

Exeter indie-Americana trio Wildwood Kin have revealed their new single ‘Warrior Daughter’. A call-to-action for female empowerment, ‘Warrior Daughter’ tells the story of a passionate mother sending her daughter into battle as a headstrong leader and foreboding force.

The mystical harmonies of Wildwood Kin – sisters Beth and Emillie Key and Cousin Meghann Loney – seduce the soul whilst stirring the heart, alongside the driving rhythms of strings and percussion. The track is taken from their forthcoming EP, which is produced by Jamie Evans (Mexicolas) and mixed by Brad Spence (Radiohead, Passenger, Coldplay, Alt J).


‘Warrior Daughter’ is the first taste of new music from the trio since 2015’s Salt Of The Earth EP, which saw the track ‘Hold On’ achieve substantial success at BBC Introducing and Radio 2 after being added to the Spotify Acoustic Afternoon Playlist where the song is now close to clocking up over a million plays on the platform.

Wildwood Kin were shortlisted for the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards last year and recently played the BBC Introducing showcase The Phoenix, Exeter as part of Radio 1’s Big Weekend as well as headlining the BBC Introducing stage at Somersault festival last summer.

Wildwood Kin tour extensively and recently completed a headline tour in the picturesque settings of the Alps at the start of the year. Not resting on their laurels, the band have been playing across the UK recently, including a number of performances at Glastonbury, with Larmer Tree Festival, Cambridge Folk Festival and many more upcoming as they prepare for the release of their new EP later this year.

The trio have also captured the hearts of iconic modern folk star Seth Lakeman and production extraordinaire Ethan Johns (Kings Of Leon, Joe Cocker, Laura Marling), who have enlisted Wildwood Kin’s heart-warming harmonies throughout Lakeman’s forthcoming new album. The trio will be playing with Seth Lakeman on his headline tour at the end of the year.

Wildwood Kin have also just been announced as the supporting act for critically acclaimed Texan duo The Oh Hellos on their UK tour next month, which features a London show at Bush Hall on August 17th.
