Fans Of: Chelsea Wolfe, PJ Harvey, Fever Ray, Johnette Napolitano, Shirley Manson, Ari Up, Siouxsie Sioux take note. Wendy Rae Fowler has released the single “This is Not A Love Song,” which was featured on the CW’s The Republic of Sarah, and has the fans in a frenzy.
The stirring new single is the second track from her forthcoming album, Warped: Resurrection (from Ghost Rhythm Records set for release on November 5) to be featured by the new series The Republic of Sarah. The first, Run, was licensed for the second episode of the series. Additionally, Fowler has recently penned and performed tracks for shows like The Killing (AMC) and Orange is the New Black (Netflix).
“This is Not A Love Song,” started out as a lullaby, an homage to a loved one but evolved into something far more sinister,” said singer & performer, Wendy Rae Fowler. “Grief churns up a slew of emotions, and in the middle of the storm the focus changed from love to vengeance. It’s really exciting to know that so many people will get a chance to hear this single via The Republic of Sarah and I can’t wait to share the full-album Warped Resurrection later this year.”
Fowler’s work has been variously described as “Brutal and Beautiful” by The Sunday Times and “Eerie and unforgettable” by The Guardian. Oozing a dark, psychedelic allure, it’s propelled by a gritty energy as Wendy’s soaring, bewitching vocals flow against whirring psychedelic hooks and tribal beats, creating a captivating soundscape.
