Mistletone proudly presents Weyes Blood, performing songs from her critically acclaimed album, Titanic Rising. Weyes Blood is donating $10 from every ticket sold from this extra Melbourne show to Wildlife Victoria to assist with much needed bushfire recovery.
Natalie Mering, known professionally as Weyes Blood, is an American singer, songwriter, and musician. Mering was raised in a musical family and began writing songs under the moniker Wise Blood at age 15, later changing the spelling to Weyes Blood. She spent some formative years in the underground noise music scene, playing in bands Jackie-O Motherfucker and Nautical Almanac.
Mering released her debut album, The Outside Room, in 2011 on Not Not Fun Records, followed up by 2014’s The Innocents on Mexican Summer. Her breakthrough occurred in 2016 with the release of Front Row Seat to Earth. With this record, she gained recognition for her distinctive style of melodic, orchestral, and melancholic songwriting melded with apocalyptic themes.
This is further refined on 2019’s strikingly beautiful and critically-acclaimed Titanic Rising (Sub Pop). The record received high placements on year-end and decade-end lists from publications such as Pitchfork, Uproxx, Paste, Uncut, Dazed, The Guardian, and NPR. Live performance highlights include sold-out tours in the US and Europe, as well as opening for Kacey Musgraves in the fall and signing with Lana Del Rey at the Hollywood Bowl.
