Grass Widow’s acute guitar riffs, wound around three-way harmonized vocals, have inspired much affection on the live circuit. Its sound is notably influenced by female ’80s postpunk legends like Kleenex, the Raincoats, and obscure Portland teenage-girl band the Neo Boys (“They’re probably my favorite band ever,” bassist Hannah Lew says). Grass Widow shares a vibe of sonic abandonment with these foundational acts, which were similarly very affected by punk’s rawness– Jess Scott
