Alison Sudol is an actor and singer who has portrayed Queenie Goldstein in the Fantastic Beasts films. About a decade ago, she crafted intelligent, enchanting pop songs under the nom de plume A Fine Frenzy. But Sudol, who was born in Seattle and raised in Los Angeles, quietly drifted off the map a few years ago. “I’ve been disappearing for as long as I can remember,” the singer confesses on her website about her musical invisibility in recent years. “Since I was little, I’ve felt a vast, wordless sadness that I couldn’t explain.” And yet Sudol has finally re-emerged from the gloom with a 2018 EP, Moon, and a recent single, “The Runner,” in which her whispery vocals flicker enigmatically across a shadowy wilderness. With Wished Bone.
