With “Last Time We Spoke,” fresh alt-rock five-piece Widow’s Work is doing their part to prove that screamo is still alive and well.
The band calls the tune — its debut single — “a song about a last ditch effort to salvage a failing relationship. Where silence consumes the inevitable collapse of two lovers. Where words could have mended this sinking ship, it’s just the start of more heartache to come.” Indeed, “Last Time We Spoke” is all of that and more and comes at the perfect time — smack in the middle of autumn, where its passionately-screamed vocals and piercing guitars add a sonic ambiance to the season.
And, true to the band’s promise, there is more where that came from. Widow’s Work will release its debut EP, “You Were Never to Blame,” on Halloween 2017.
