The most consistent thing about The Raven and the Writing Desk is evolution. After a year of turmoil, TRAWTD shed it's baroque-pop skin for a lush, dreamy dark-pop sound inlaid with the heavy grooves and introspection of a year of change. Westword says "The new music is nothing like the old. LiBassi's lyric-writing has matured, and the hooks and melodies are more clear. It's also stripped down, calm and full of tension." The four members have an obvious chemistry on-stage that they've made a point of sharing with as many cities as possible on the road. On the heels of their 2015 release 'some get started,' TRATWD prepares for a summer of touring and festivals including a shared stage with Blonde Redhead and Owen Pallett in June.
