Formed in 2009, As In We began as an unnamed conduit; a means to vent an unexpressed style of music between its three original members, Haven Willis, Ben Durfee and Gunnar Lyon. Having come from separate bands with varying styles, the three members sought to start a project with a capability of encompassing the dynamics of multiple genres, from the vast, droning beauty of post rock to the technical, frenetic frenzy of math rock and experimental metal. The trio quickly gained listener attention in its southwest town of Santa Fe, New Mexico, as a unique, universally appealing blend of danceable indie rock and sheer intensity. After countless shows, ranging in size from over-crowded living room sweat fests, to opening a sold out show for the Smashing Pumpkins, the trio realized their need and desire to expand their creative barriers in the summer of 2011 by incorporating a second guitar player, Eliza Lutz. Prior to joining As In we, Eliza was a well established solo, acoustic folk performer, who had gained much attention with her capability of combining heart wrenching vocals with unique, technical guitar-tapping melodies. Eliza's compositional prowess proved to be a perfect fit in As In We's fast paced, creative style, opening up an entirely new realm of writing style and inspiration. The group immediately began exploring the capabilities that had been opened up by the addition of its newest member, and within months they had successfully evolved as a group, maturing their sound and composing their most focused and technical material to date. As a newly formed four piece, As In We has solidified its identity as an entirely unique, intense yet danceable powerhouse of post rock, math rock and groove, providing listeners with an unforgettable aural experience.
