Woozy ready debut, tour (2015)

Exploding In Sound and Community Records are thrilled to team up for the co-release of Blistered, the full length debut from New Orleans’ Woozy. After a pair of EPs, singles, splits, and a compilation of the band’s earliest material, the long awaited Blistered will be released on October 16.
Woozy, comprised of Kara Stafford (guitar/vocals), John St. Cyr (guitar/vocals) and Ian Paine-Jesam (drums/percussion) have evolved their sound on the album, pushing the trio’s experimental “rock music” into new territory while remaining true to their intricate melodies and introspective lyricism. Blending gorgeous songwriting with heavy and extreme dynamic shifts, the band’s dual lead vocals and guitars challenge natural pop tendencies to create something that avoids easy genre categorization.
Elements of indie rock, first wave emo, slowcore, post-punk, art rock, anti-folk, sludge, post-harcore and pure unadulterated pop all swirl together under the demanding beauty of Stafford and St. Cyr’s harmonies. Fidgeting in every direction that the band describe as the sound of a “introspective singer/songwriter brain in a frankenstein body.
