Ragana – “Desolation’s Flower”

The heavy genre-agnostic duo Ragana started in Olympia, Washington more than a decade ago. Band members Maria and Nicole — no last names given — trade off vocals and instruments, and they make a vast, epic, desolate sound that draws on black metal, screamo, doom, and the most paralyzingly depressing indie rock from their Pacific Northwest environs. Ragana’s last album was 2017’s You Take Nothing, and they followed it with Let Our Names Be Forgotten, their 2018 split with Thou, and their 2019 EP We Know That The Heavens Are Empty. (Great titles.) Today, Ragana announce plans to release their new album Desolation’s Flower, and they’ve shared the epic title track.
