Polish one-woman dark neofolk project, Ols, is streaming the new album “Widma” (translates to Spectres from Polish) in its entirety ahead of its 17 April release via Pagan Records.

Ols’ music explores the magical realms of misty forests and mysterious wetlands. The songs are based on polyphonic vocal harmonies, complemented with instrumental parts which build a ritual and hypnotic character.
Ols is led by the multitalented artist Anna Maria Oskierko, and is a one-woman project in the full sense of the word – Anna composes the music, writes the lyrics, sings and plays all the instruments herself.
Her latest offering, “Widma”, is a concept album about late autumn which in human life corresponds to old age. The songs throughout the album lead the listener through the stages of growing older and autumnal dying – from the first hoarfrost, the first gray hair, through to the arrival of November darkness, loneliness, madness, up to the coming of winter and death.
