INFO: In 2001, with the release of its debut EP titled EPrime (Interscope), the Los Angeles group Woven set out to pave new roads with their signature aesthetic blend of organic and synthetic elements. Exploring the spectrum of electronic and rock influences, the music travels a path from guitar-driven drum and bass to syncopated, sparse IDM, ending in a dark and brooding dream state. The eclectic songs from EPrime quickly made their way into heavy rotation and charted nationwide on CMJ as the 5th most added record that year for college radio then landing spots on L.A.'s groundbreaking radio station KCRW 89.9.
