Arden and the Wolves: Who Can You Trust
By Lisa Waugh
Arden Leigh brings the magic on her new record Who Can You Trust, literally. Along with the Wolves, Leigh has packed the five-track EP with her experience in the art of healing. Leigh conjures a post-traumatic future with her powerful voice and steady lyrical hand. As a spellcraft practitioner, Leigh sees each song as a powerful tool to guide and transform.
Leigh describes Who Can You Trust this way:
“This EP is a magickal working designed to impart healing, discernment, justice, transformation, necessary grieving, and ultimately wholeness and return to universal love to anyone who wishes to use it intentionally for those aims. I’ve included some spells and rituals in the digital booklet in order to assist with those intentions, but my hope is that it weaves healing into the collective organically. Lord knows we need it.”
Who Can You Trust is also a lot of fun. Leigh’s voice has a Pat Benatar edge as she rips through the lead track. She soars on “Poison Heart” and “The Death of Me.” Arden and the Wolves spin the magic overall on this one.
