The Eugene-based duo called Poet and formed by Cavan and Tiffany Wagner decided to set Emily Dickinson’s poetry to music, with an intriguing death doom funeral, between the use of violin and female vocals as an alternative to growl. Emily is a very intense album and obviously rich from a lyrical point of view, while on a sonic level, if it’s true that the influences mentioned are Usnea, Lycus and Bell Witch, I’d say that it’s only the latter that have anything to do with what the duo proposes.
