A four-piece concept-choir that includes members of Babeheaven, Jerkcurb, Arlo Day, Hester and Thidius, Woom’s indie folklore debut ‘Into The Rest’ is an EP like no other.
A perfect composition of original material alongside reworked covers, it’s almost as if these songs knew they had new lives that needed to be lived. Alongside Outkast’s ‘Prototype’, Angel Olsen’s Unfucktheworld’, and Linda Perhacs’ ‘Chimacum Rain’, there’s ‘Seigfried / White Ferrari / Self Control’ – their own spellbinding arrangement of three different Frank Ocean songs made into one.
It’s hard to know what’s more impressive, the seamless meshing of their vocals or the fact they recorded the entire EP in just one take, capturing their unique live power. The song ‘Walk’ showcases this, as not only is it the first track they recorded, but their honeyed tones speak to the narrative itself.
‘Into The Rest’ an emotive, singular listening experience.
