Gothic siren or Plain Jane?

NEEDHAM

Marissa Nadler sings about coffins and gravestones, but her music doesn't necessarily match her style.

The Needham native makes herself out to be a gothic enchantress, but when fans see her for the first time, they are often surprised or disappointed.

"I think based on my music people expect me to be very witchy, like I fly in on a broomstick or something," the 25-year-old tells the Globe in a Weekend section story today.
