New York-based folk act Wilsen has been quietly garnering attention from fans and the blogosphere over the past few months. The band just finished a tour with Daughter and recently released their second single “Dusk.” The b-side for this single is a ghostly take on Grimes‘ breakout single, “Oblivion.”

While Claire Boucher’s vocals are dauntingly high, Wilsen singer Tamsin Wilson takes the song on in a quiet and haunting manner. The cover feels like a floating lullaby , completely dreamy and worth a listen before you slip into your REM cycle.

Listen to more Wilsen on their bandcamp page.
