Formerly Bodies is another member of the growing community of singer-songwriter acts with electric guitars and delay pedals (think Julien Baker and Many Rooms). Thankfully this scene is still fairly diverse and it’s always refreshing to see a female artist deviate from pop and electronica.
The Michigan-based project is run by Hannah Weir, who draws influence from Now, Now and My Epic – if anything, that should give you a good idea of the potential at hand. Although the sound is stripped down, it never feels too empty. Weir’s lyrics are vulnerable but hopeful all the same.
