Having released her recent sophomore album Apokalypsis, LA’s spooky songstress Chelsea Wolfe recorded a 3-song performance for i-D Magazine. The video demonstrates the artist’s ability to create hauntingly spectral soundscapes full of gloomy layers and ominous atmospherics.

Pitchfork recently praised the album for taking elements of Sonic Youth, Portishead and PJ Harvey all whilst being the “closest that Chelsea Wolfe comes to sounding less like something else, and more like herself.” Kind of like Bjork’s evil sister, there’s plenty of dark menace to revel in.
