Boomkat Product Review:
Here releasing their debut album, Wive are a band based upon the creative fulcrum of drummer/programmer Matt Irwin and violinist Hannah Murray. These two central musicians recruited a number of friends to serve as additional players, fleshing out the core sound with guitars and piano until Pvll began to take its shape. Recording was handled in various living rooms and basements, with production gradually pieced together over the internet in order to accommodate the geographical distance separating the various band members. The end result is a remarkably intimate, very live sounding record that situates its tone somewhere between the rootsy, isolated songwriting of Bon Iver and the grand, glitch-augemented embellishments of someone like Efterklang. The mixture of more abstract electronic textures with these maudlin, string-laced chamber pieces brings an extra layer of depth to songs like 'Tongve Of Callvs' and the lovely 'The Day Bvrnt To Death' - I should point out at this juncture that the 'u' on my keyboard isn't on the blink, it's just that Wive seem to favour their lettering in the archaic, pre-Gothic style, which might well mean that the band are really called Wiue, and we'll never know it.
