Woven

EPrime

Interscope

The most magical combination of Deftones-like rock and downtempo electronic fuel, Woven’s departure is simply mind blowing. The seductive, reaching “Beautiful” is only the beginning of the sextet’s capabilities. The LA group likes to call their style “Orsynthanic,” meaning that it’s organic and synthetic – a pretty accurate description. Taking the raw lyrics and vocals, small samples and amazingly simplistic drum n’ bass, just when they appear to be downtempo – the grinding guitars resurface and you’re convinced they’re a rock group. Woven’s five-song debut is like a grocery store food sample– it’s overtaking, and you reach a point where you have to buy the whole product. The thinking person’s rock with a perfect electronic edge and truly amazing novelty.
