Weathering

FORMED FROM THE ASHES OF VARIOUS FAILED MUSIC PROJECTS BY GUITARIST/VOCALIST/LYRICIST OGDEN BASYE AND PRODUCER/BASSIST JACK RALEIGH, WEATHERING SLOWLY GREW FROM IT'S UNAMBITIOUS ROOTS INTO A FAR MORE REFINED INSTALLATION IN THE PORTLAND MUSIC SCENE. OVER THE YEARS BETWEEN 2018 AND 2021, RALEIGH AND BASYE, LONGTIME FRIENDS, WORKED INDEPENDENTLY OF ONE ANOTHER, EACH DEVELOPING THEIR OWN TAKE ON THE MELANCHOLIC SONGWRITING THAT WOULD EVENTUALLY FORM THE BACKBONE OF WEATHERING.

FINALLY, IN LATE 2021, WITH THE ADDITION OF SIBLINGS ELLA (GUITARIST/VOCALIST) AND JAKE VAN DER VEEN (DRUMMER), AS WELL AS RALEIGH'S UNEXPECTED RETURN FROM NEW ORLEANS, THE BAND ROUNDED OUT THEIR CAST AND BEGAN TO PRODUCE SONGS FOR THEIR DEBUT ALBUM.

PARTICULARLY CAPTIVATING, WERE THE PIECES OF LOSS AND LOATHING, FASHIONED BY BASYE'S CRYPTIC LYRICISM AND DREARY GUITAR WORK, COUPLED WITH THE HAUNTING-YET-HARMONIOUS INTERLOCKING OF BASYE AND VAN DER VEEN'S VOCALS.

WHILE NOTABLY INSPIRED BY THE SLOWCORE MOVEMENT OF THE EARLY 2000S, CIRCA BANDS LIKE CARISSA'S WIERD AND LOW, WEATHERING FINDS A UNIQUE SOUND IN THEIR CONCEPTUAL STORYTELLING AND CRAZED DYNAMIC SHIFTS POSSIBLY MOST PROMINENT IN SONGS LIKE FLOWERS FOR A SCIENTIST.

THE BAND CURRENTLY RESIDES IN PORTLAND, WHERE THEY ARE RECORDING THEIR DEBUT.
