Since 2008, the trio have forged music to reflect their habitat. Based in the empty sparse Irish countryside at the foot of Sheemore, these atmospheric surroundings helped to forge their music, which has been described as ‘minimal, repetitive, distorted, ugly and beautiful in one’.
The trio spent several years experimenting with combinations of instrumentation, household objects, kitchen utensils, seashells, footsteps, chimes, recordings of cats purring and frogs mating while developing a sound that after a recent set was described as ‘a Turkish Velvet Underground.’
Woven Skull have recorded in dark haunted woods, beside bottomless lakes, and in the attics of abandoned houses.
“Cyclical rhythms, drone-based mantras the eerie creaks and haunted cries of the natural realm that surround them converge to form a dark and beguiling ritual magick.” – SUPERNORMAL
