Golden Webs is the first LP from Olympia band Margy Pepper. Major themes of magic, woods, water, and
candy emerge from a dynamic and heavy three piece sound. Golden Webs
balances light and dark, chaos and harmony; bridging childhood and
Lyrically illuminated from the surroundings of the Pacific Northwest,
Margy Pepper finds inspiration in the mountains and trees, lakes and
rain: "We are screaming, flying, laughing - we won't stop."
"Fierce and driving in sound, it’s an
album that radiates confidence, tenderness, and poise. Powered by
forceful sonic guitars and booming drums, each track twists and turns
with crescendoing shifts never ending in the same place it began.
"Lyrically is where Golden Webs’ crux is found. With motifs of confrontations with water, ice, nature,
light, and darkness the influence Olympia’s surroundings and the Puget
Sound set the scene throughout. As in mid album burner, “666,” “I miss
my family but I’ve got the woods and the country… and the crows surround
me, if I could speak to flying and screaming I’d ask them to in habit
my body,” the balance of self and surroundings is all too important." - Patrick Sexton, Suave Citation
