The Sweet Hurt

indie folk // singer songwriter

The Sweet Hurt, Wendy Wang’s solo project, has been around in various forms since 2003 — since then she’s released a handful of EPs, plays for what seems like a thousand different bands (including The Bird and the Bee, Priscilla Ahn and Obi Best), and last year, released her first full-length album, The Sweet Hurt LP. The album was well worth the wait; it’s winsome and strikingly honest, and highlights Wendy’s talents as a songwriter and instrumentalist. Like the name suggests, there is a quiet loveliness that pervades the entire album, highlighted by the elegant chamber pop arrangements. Take a listen to the stunning “Things Fall Apart” and the impossibly catchy “Hugs” below!

Heartbreaking and heartfelt.

    Thanks for turning me on to Wendy’s music. It’s grand. Like the best parts of Aimee Mann and Bic Runga. Loving it.

    I love her! She is grand. Refreshingly honest voice, direct lyrics and chill sweet orchestration. Glad she made an album!I I’m going to have to go and check it out.
