It’s quite hard to think of one word that perfectly pinpoints what WOOM do. Choir almost does the job, but despite being almost-acapella, it doesn’t fully characterize their magic. Lets just say for now: together as WOOM, Ella, Izzy, Lara and Alice are four voices. The four-part concept-choir have already amassed a passionate cult fanbase, including past touring partners like King Krule, Whitney and The Big Moon who re-envisage songs in way that is at the same time new and familiar, delicate yet powerful. Their notoriety as a completely immersive, near-transcendental experience is fast becoming the stuff of indie folklore.
Their lush, harmony-laden vocal re-interpretations of songs by Frank Ocean, Angel Olsen & Outkast, amongst others, have become a WOOM calling card. They re-envisage in way that is at the same time new and familiar, delicate yet powerful. Comprising something of a supergroup of southeast London luminaries, WOOM includes members of Babeheaven, Arlo Day, Teeth Machine, Hester, Thidius and Jerkcurb.
