Wolfe’s sound reaches new depths, as evidenced by the lead-off track, “The Way We Used To”. With very little beyond the cut’s hollowed-out drums and sparse harmonies as support, Wolfe’s voice is a gorgeous beacon of light and soul in a vast wilderness of despair.” – Consequence of Sound
 
“Chelsea Wolfe’s songs (and that crystalline voice) are hypnotic and deeply emotional; despair and hope, confusion and clarity, joy and sorrow, all lie within her often-cinematic arrangements.” – Glamour Magazine
 
“To say that Unknown Rooms is simply Wolfe‘s “acoustic record” is misleading; it’s every bit as ethereal and haunting as past work that mines the darkness of artists like Burzum and Leonard Cohen in one breath.” – NPR
 
“…Her tracks are so chillingly–‐well, cool, that we’ll probably still have them on repeat long after winter is over.” – Nylon
 
Chelsea Wolfe’s new album sounds like a well-loved book: bound and worn and grainy, each word collected in its own elegantly strung phrase.” – Fader
 
“She has found her voice within paralleling the likes of Sonic Youth and PJ Harvey, while making strides all on her own.” – Interview Magazine
 
Wolfe’s bold, drastic break from character on Unknown Rooms is a successful one.” –Paste Magazine
 
“Her voice, in these wide-open arrangements, emerges as stunning” – Pitchfork

“This is Chelsea Wolfe’s quietest, most beautiful album to date, showcasing a vulnerability that simultaneously pushes the listener’s comfort level to its limits and is sincerely inviting in its simplicity.” – Tiny Mix Tapes
 
Unknown Rooms is very, very accomplished, giving the sense that Wolfe has realised the extent of her own ability and acted on it.” – The Quietus

Northern California native, Chelsea Wolfe’s sound is best described with broad strokes: elemental, intense, radiant, ancient yet modern, intimate yet expansive, dark and sparkling. Hues of black metal and deep blues inform her ever-evolving electric folk, a warm force that wraps itself around the listener, encouraging uplift, seeking triumph. Chelsea Wolfe will be heading back over to Europe this Spring for a headline run where she will be combining her sets of acoustic and electric songs, taken from last year’s highly acclaimed album, Unknown Rooms and also tracks from her new album due out later this year on Sargent House.
