Title - Dear Onda Wahl
Artist - Lizzie & The Makers

For those unaware, NYC-based Lizzie & The Makers have released their third single Mojo Hand today, accompanied by a dark, mysterious music video that ends with a ghoulish twist.

The otherworldly track is the third single from their sophomore studio album Dear Onda Wahl (out now independently) which was produced by renowned producers Reeves Gabrels (David Bowie, Tin Machine) and Mario J. McNulty (David Bowie, Prince).

I wanted to make a video somewhere in the woods and incorporate a spooky séance of sorts, says frontwoman Lizzie Edwards of the ominous witchy video treatment, produced by Alphawave Studios in New Jersey.

We filmed at Tenafly Nature Center in New Jersey that had all of these creepy little fairy houses scattered throughout the forest. Then, inspired by The Ring, we used a filter to create dark overtones and a glitchy effect.

Recorded at Mission Sound Recording in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, LP Dear Onda Wahl threads rootsy, shoegazey, psychedelic layers throughout its core. Though influenced by traditional music genres, we were also heavily influenced by David Lynch and Twin Peaks in writing this album. So there is always a little bit of old and familiar mixed with alien, fantasy and the unexpected in our music, remarks Edwards.

Opening on the thunderous, drum-led, swamp rocker Lover By Proxy and the free flowing, ‘70s-imbied rock hipsway found within Mermaid, they are followed by the atmospherically-charged, sultry blues of Magic River, the bouncy pop-rock of LES Idiots, and then the reverberating vocal stance of the hard-stanced Bottle.

Next up is the gently-gated swash of prog-imbued mellowness within the cathartic, slow rock jam Waiting for the Teeth, the rambunctious title track Dear Onda Wahl (a play on words that refers to a metaphorical letter Lizzie wrote to a mounted hunting trophy at the bar where she worked, i.e Deer On The Wall), the album rounding out on their yearningly translucent approach to the forlorn Tell Her, closing (all too soon) on the rousing, hauntingly sonic Mojo Hand (featuring great guitar work, as always, from Reeves Gabrels).

The most exciting thing about working on recording the album was the music and the people themselves, comments Reeves Gabrels. Lizzie is a distinctive singer and she and Gregg McMullen are great songwriters with a sense of rock tradition and a willingness to push the music forward.

Lizzie & The Makers’ debut album, Fire from the Heart of Man was released in 2015, followed by the EP Meanwhile… three years later. A 2017 concert collection Live at Rockwood Music Hall conveyed The Makers’ famously visceral stage show.

Lizzie & The Makers is singer/songwriter Lizzie Edwards, guitarist Greg McMullen, bassist Brett Bass (Gregg Allman, Bernie Worrell), drummer Steve Williams (Sadé, Digable Planets, Keith Richards, David Byrne) and keyboard player Rob Clores (Black Crowes, Jesse Malin).
