Wooing's "The Clouds" is an otherworldly vision

The Clouds, the newest single by New York’s Wooing, is a release that feels not of this time. Through frontwoman and multi-instrumentalist Rachel Trachtenburg’s haunting vocals, softly commanded against echoing pedal-laden guitar lines, the band crafts a soundscape that feels both vintage and otherworldly, as if Motown existed in a universe of David Lynch’s making. Even the opening lyrics on “Could Have Been” implore feelings of a disconnect, as Trachtenburg (previously in Supercute! and Prettiots) paints surrealist landscapes wherein she “went to the moon, [and] saw your head up in the clouds” as an eerie, theremin-like sound wanders behind her. Between “Could Have Been” and b-side “In Her Head,” Wooing have stumbled upon visions of the subconscious that could be either dreams or nightmares, but they are captivatingly engrossing nonetheless. - Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt)

Noise pop trio Wooing celebrates debut EP on May 10 within Pianos residency

Readers who've been sticking around for a while may remember Rachel Trachtenburg from teen indie band Supercute! (active in the NYC scene around 2013), and then also as the drummer of ironic folk pop band The Prettiots. Rachel, who is also an actress and model, has recently formed her own group, called Wooing, which is about to release its debut EP through a live show at Pianos on May 10th. The show is part of a monthly residency that will see the band perform at the Ludlow venue every Wednesday of the current month, starting tonight (05.03). The three songs available online showcase a trio uncommitted to a particular genre (we hear, intermittently, folk, noise rock, dream pop...), but generally inclined to find any good excuse to get really loud and noisy, as you can hear in streaming track 'Tear World.'
