Acarya / Press

“Acarya's Reperio Terra was named A TOP RELEASE OF 2013!!! Acarya - Reperio Terra Wes Davidson on vocals and acoustic guitar and Liz Wu on percussion and harmony vocals — might suggest something sparse and perhaps even gentle, the group’s chosen descriptor, “Tribal Rock,” comes a lot closer to capturing the full, lively sound the duo conjures on its debut EP, Reperio Terra.”

“with Wu’s huge, textural rhythmic thrust — created on a specially designed drum kit consisting of a variety of worldly percussion instruments — and the intuitive, versatile songwriting, Acarya comes up with a sound all its own. Davidson’s vocals and melodies have the warm, emotive qualities of Peter Gabriel, a perfect match for the World music flavors of Wu’s very musical approach to percussion, while the songwriting has a fluid, organic quality that furthers the hypnotic power of the six-song EP.”

“Although Acarya’s minimal lineup — Wes Davidson on vocals and acoustic guitar and Liz Wu on percussion and harmony vocals — might suggest something sparse and perhaps even gentle, the group’s chosen descriptor, “Tribal Rock,” comes a lot closer to capturing the full, lively sound the duo conjures on Reperio Terra.”

““This band achieves the almost impossible ­ a new and original take on this thing called Rock and Roll. Is it Rock? Is it Pop? It is Acarya.””

“The name Tribal Rock suits them perfectly, from the earthy sound of Davidson’s acoustic guitar and percussive strumming patterns to the unique integration of ethnic hand drums in Liz’s custom made kit. The music is driving, dynamic and dramatic, resulting in an amazing richness of texture.”
