AUDIO: Marielle Allschwang & the Visitations – “Somewhere to Swim”
Experimental folk rockers Marielle Allschwang & the Visitations are out with a new EP. Allschwang was the artist in residence for Rise & Thrive, a program offered by LOTUS, an organization that serves survivors of sexual violence and human trafficking. It was there where she worked with four survivors who wrote poems of empowerment, joy, and renewal in their aftermath of their trauma. These four songs are inspired by such poems, crafting graceful, honorable melodies that complement the lyrical passages implementing the survivors’ words of resilience. It’s an exquisite, potent release from Marielle Allschwang & the Visitations that grants bardic triumph to those healing. 40% of digital sales are going to LOTUS Legal Clinic.
