Poughkeepsie-based hard chamber rock quartet The Warp/The Weft are psyched to announce the release of their single "Briars" off their forthcoming album Mapping an Absence out 7/29/17 via Admirable Traits Records.

Here is what lead singer Shane Murphy had to say about "Briars"

"I had the idea for ‘Briars’ for quite a while. I nearly shelved it, but it breathed the way I was hoping it might when I finally brought it to the band. It was the song on the album that seemed to want the dramatic vocal texturing and the whirr of the hurdy gurdy. And guitarist Chris Pellnat has always wanted a song that ended a cappella…he finally got it!"

The Warp/The Weft, active since 2012 in and beyond New York’s Hudson River Valley, has earned praise for its uniqueness and song-crafting from casual and devoted listeners alike. Blending traditional and avant-garde styles, the warmth of a good wool sweater and the sometimes-bleak cold of an upstate winter, the progressive folk and psychedelia that the band brings to bear (compared to Fairport Convention and Jethro Tull) is propelled by poetic lyrics and a "spirit-conjuring," lilting tenor that "puts Murphy alongside Shearwater’s Jonathan Meiburg as one of the most captivating high-register voices in rock today" (Ron Hart, Chronogram). 2017’s Mapping an Absence introduces bassist Trevor Larcheveque, whose vocal harmonies help to anchor the band firmly in the chamber category.

The Warp/The Weft are…

Trevor Larcheveque: Bass/Vocals

Christian Laura: Drums

Shane Murphy: Vocals/Guitar

Chris Pellnat: Guitar/Accordion
