Irish multi-media artist Hilary Woods has released a surprise new EP Feral Hymns, today via Sacred Bones Records, which is available digitally and as a limited edition run of 300 cassettes exclusive to Bandcamp.
Feral Hymns is a collection of powerful and cavernous compositions, produced by Hilary and mixed and mastered by frequent collaborator Lasse Marhaug. Speaking about the new release, Woods said: “A collection of hymns set at dusk. Speckled memory, dust, earth, grit, ritual and chant – purged in the shadows. Unspoken bonds, primal pain, cyclical patterns, unsent love letters. Homemade recordings, made at home.”

Feral Hymns is a significant step away from Woods’ previous work and can be taken as a standalone record for an ever-evolving artist as she continues to work on a new full-length album.
