Malmö-based two piece Wy have been love at first listen for us at NBHAP ever since they first showed up on our musical radar four years ago.

Not only does it once again show the profound songwriting skills of Catherine McCandless but also that she's a fighter that is willing to carry her artistic vision on against all obstacles. On NBHAP she explains how.
