Grief and upheaval are at the core of Kue Varo’s Cowboy Witchcraft, a complete collection of ten songs that feels like a reckoning with the whole idea of coming home (if truly coming home is ever possible). Varo’s strong vocals carry the weight of her lyrics with deceptive ease, and the gothic-western-tinged rockers chug along with trainbeat precision and pop optimism. Cowboy Witchcraft swoops and dances like the hanging Northern Lights above the dark Alberta skies of her birth, opening up spaces for her exciting voice to shine bright like a guiding star.
