Les RAV – “Darkest”
***SXSW 2013 – OEB FRESHMAN FAVORITE***
Pairs Well With…Fiona Apple, Jolie Holland, Ellie Goulding
In a set that’s oddly stacked with female folksters, orchestral pop band Les RAV stand out for a variety of reasons. Frontwoman Lauren Bruno employs fascinating jazz inflections in her melodies, but delivers lines with emotional abandon. Alone, this would be worth noting, but Les RAV specialize in a true form of orchestral folk. Employing a string quartet masterfully on a few tracks or just mining traditional musical counterpoint on piano, there’s always that classical nature. It doesn’t sound like an add-on as with many anthemic folk acts, rather the basis for which Les RAV’s quiet elegance can find a home. Though Les RAV can be considered a ‘baby band’ on SXSW terms, they do hail from Austin and will hopefully bring at least a quartet as they gig throughout town in March.
