Upcoming show: Wovenhand + Marriages (12.04 Paris, 14.04 Tourcoing)

Returning to European soil for us eager fans, experimental rock band Wovenhand will be granting us another opportunity for us French fans to see them perform on their upcoming tour promoting their latest record Refractory Obdurate, which includes a date in Paris @Le Trabendo (April 12th) and in Tourcoing (April 14th).

Starting out as a solo side-project to his work with the now-disbanded Alternative Country act 16 Horsepower, musician and lyricist David Eugene Edwards founded Wovenhand in 2001 and has been consistently showcasing and expanding his immense creative talent through each of the bands' records. The Denver, Colorado based band draws influence from a large variety of different musical genres ranging from neo-folk and country music to gothic americana and desert rock, fronted by Edwards' dark, soulful voice and adding up to the organic and truly unique sound that is Wovenhand. With their latest album Refractory Obdurate released last year, the band took a step towards further harnessing the louder aspects of their sounds, showcasing some hints punk-rock spirited compositions while remaining true to their original formula.

Joining the band for this upcoming tour in april are yet another act you won't want to miss out on. After releasing one of our favorite albums of 2014 with her solo effort Some heavy Ocean, frontwoman Emma Ruth Rundle, teamed up with her Red Sparrowes bandmate Greg Burns, will serving as a support act for this European tour with her somber post-rock inspired band Marriages. The band will be supporting the release of their debut full-length release, titled Salome, scheduled for release on april 7th. (The first track to drop off of this upcoming release, Skin, is linked below). Hinting at some influences coming from Shoegaze (Slowdive, Cocteau Twins...) and metal as well as Emma Ruth rundles' back catalog from her other projects (Red Sparrowes, The Nocturnes...), the three-piece act from Los Angeles take a cinematic, dark yet beautifully melancholic route with their songs, as demonstrated on their excellent debut EP Kitsune, released back in 2012.

This upcoming Parisian concert is definitely one I urge any fan of dark-tinted alternative music to check out. These are 2 top-notch acts whose artistic singularity and appearance on E
uropean soil are hard to come by lately. Whether you're familiar with these artists or musical universes at all, I can only recommend you come out to the show and check them out for yourself; I doubt you'll regret it.
