Brush your hair back and run. As fast as you can. Or rip your Comb pendant from your neck and throw it over your shoulder. Game changer - the evil or witches that haunt you will be trapped.

In Baltic folklore, there is an reoccurring theme surrounding talismanic comb,
a magic amulet to fight off the wicked.

If the protagonist is chased by
a sorceress, he drops a tiny comb pendant over his shoulder and a forest rises up in it’s place. The vicious then become trapped forever amid the trees.

Believe it or not, these magic combs actually existed. And people carried them around for protection and good luck. Some of the oldest combs discovered date as far back to the 7th-9th centuries.

Drawing on this ancient myth for inspiration and playing upon the abstracted shape of a comb - with it’s spikes and edges - we re-imagined this shielding story into a modern folk melody that became the JUNE NINETEEN Comb collection.
