Pilgrims of Yearning - Hadal

We cover a lot of post punk music here, but no one sounds quite like Pilgrims of Yearning. The duo moved from Chile to Boston in 2018 and released their first album that year. Earlier this year they released the four song EP Hadal which truly showcases their sound. The songs on the EP have this wonderfully dark and gothic vibe, leaning into artists like Sisters of Mercy and Siouxsie & The Banshees. But what sets Pilgrims of Yearning apart from their predecessors is a unique Latin flair to their music. Songs like "La Mar" and "Tides" take the classic post punk and New Wave sound and twist it just slightly to keep it sounding fresh and completely their own. We'll be watching for this late 2022 discovery very closely to see what they do next.

You can watch the video for "La Mar" below. Hadal is out now and is available on Bandcamp. For more on Pilgrims of Yearning, check out the artist's Facebook and Instagram.
