With its first release of the new year, Life and Death is proud to introduce the newest members of its formidable and tight knit family, Woo York. Hailing from the Ukraine, this hard working duo has been successfully making the transition from local heroes to major international players through their crafting of strong, emotive techno accompanied by a live show notable for its improvisational streak, allowing the guys to stay true to the spirit of the songs while still adapting them to whatever setting they find themselves presented with.
For their debut appearance on Life and Death, they show an impressive range as they move from one mood to the next while always retaining their cohesive sound. From the beautiful opening salvo of Valley of the Songs to the forward march of Odyssey to the unrelenting battle cry of Black Soul and then back to the triumphant finale of Distance, Woo York cover all the bases here, taking the listener on a trip that feels complete from start to finish.
Its an impressive beginning for their debut on Life and Death and we can surely expect much more from this forward thinking pair in the years to come.
On the digital release, the extra bonus track He and She is also included.
