Wyn Doran cuts deep in new single "Cigarettes"

For Nashua, New Hampshire's Wyn Doran, public evisceration of her personal experiences through music is nothing new, but her latest single "Cigarettes" cuts even deeper than usual. The music is tinged with residues of anger, fresh disappointment, and many stains of love all lit by the bluesy guitars that riff away in "Cigarettes" and the soulful vocals of Doran, which carve its choruses. The emotion in the music can be intimating, only because of the deep, relatable pain it reveals, the humanity behind it all too real. Doran is in her full alt-soul element in this new single, and that only adds a layer of strength to recall the song's theme head-on; Wyn shows in the track the same grit that has characterized her sound, explosive beats and all. Stream "Cigarettes" below, you may just recognize something in its blackened, burning candor. - Rene Cobar

   

Wyn Doran unleashes soulful new single "Spell," plays O'Brien's Pub 08.02

Yes, the rhythm is contagious, the bass real fat, the keys a bit spooky but it is the fiery vocal delivery of Nashua’s Wyn Doran that is the talisman entrancing in “Spell” her latest single. Known to a select few as Amy Wynne Doran, the singer/songwriter faces her insecurities in this single, and she incinerates them in a sonic flame of jazz, blues, and soul influences that suit her vocal prowess. “Spell” takes the listener for a ride with intervals of ambient build-ups, hard-pounding drums, brass instrumentation, and electric guitar flourishes. The NH-based artist exudes the kind of confidence necessary to drive the intricate instrumentation right through the heart. Wyn Doran will be performing at O’ Brien’s Pub in Boston on August 2nd, in the meantime we are streaming “Spell” below. - Rene Cobar
