It’s been three years since Weyes Blood stepped foot in Australia, and a lot has changed. After signing a worldwide record deal with Sub Pop, Natalie Mering (Weyes Blood) disappeared from the road to write and record her next album. The result, Titanic Rising, is Weyes Blood’s most stunning achievement to date and has received sweeping critical acclaim.

The live show is also spectacular, currently stunning crowds all over North American and Europe.  Playing sold out venues in both continents, Weyes Blood has elevated her live show since her last trip to Australia and will be bringing her full five-piece band. Adorned in a tailored white suit, Weyes Blood is eager to return to the southern hemisphere.

“A set somewhere between alien and angel, an ornate, cosmic tangle of Laurel Canyon wistfulness and her rich, velvety voice” – ACL LIVE

“Stirring yet serene. Joyous yet plaintive. Ethereal yet earthy. Optimistic yet doom-laden. Soft-spoken yet golden-voiced. Natalie Mering, aka Weyes Blood, is a bundle of contradictions, a spirit of balance. Her voice is a shining beacon that breaks through the melancholic fog that shrouds her poppy arrangements” – NORTHERN TRANSMISSIONS

“Natalie Mering’s multitude of fans know that spending time with her music brings exquisite reward. Its buoyant beauty would be welcome at any time in history, but it arrives like sweet nectar roundabout now. 
She is Weyes by name, and wise by nature. She sings of earthly devastation and the human condition with a canny kind of knowingness that leaves you wondering if maybe the end won’t be so bad after all.
This year’s Titanic Rising is her finest, most expansive work to date. It is immersive, beautiful music. Timeless in that classic American-songbook type of way, yet speaking from a very present time and place on planet earth. It follows her breakout record, Front Row Seat to Earth, and psych-pop gems with Drugdealer. Weyes Blood is as comfortable writing hooks as prying into gnarliness.
Sunday afternoon. Serenity now” – AUNTY MEREDITH
