From the dreich, winding closes of Edinburgh come Juniper Grave. Riding out under the banner of debut album ‘Of Hellions and Harridans’, these four harbingers of doom have distilled the influence of classic rock deities, folktales of ancient horrors and the wailing laments of the sirens into a heady fog of blues-drenched doom-rock.
Recounter of sagas, Jenni Sneddon, wields her smoke-and-honey voice like a weapon, by turns weaving tales of forgotten lore and declaiming dread incantations, while she and her bandmates open a portal to the ‘70s with shimmering organs, enchanting backing vocals and syrupy, resinous riffs.
After honing their craft performing live in support of Witchsorrow, Slough Feg, Dystopian Future Movies & Church Of The Cosmic Skull they are hell bent on spreading their fables of accursed souls and formidable women throughout the land.
Dare you flirt with powers beyond your ken? Step out of the shadows, child, and allow Juniper Grave to impart to you the tale of your undoing. ‘Of Hellions & Harridans‘ is out now on Wasted State Records on vinyl, CD and digital. Join the menagerie at a show near you in May 2019 as they hit the road in support of French, ambient doom darlings; Deathbell.
