WATTER
WATTER Usa
Watter is a musical collective made up of close friends and collaborators whose collective pedigree reads like a desert island list of must-haves in experimental rock musicians.

Multi-instrumentalists Zak Riles (Grails) and Tyler Trotter are the ever-evolving group's only constants, with frequent and inspired contributions from Britt Walford (Slint), Tony Levin (King Crimson), Dominic Cipolla (Phantom Family Halo, Torres), Rachel Grimes (Rachel’s), Bundy K. Brown (Tortoise), Todd Cook (Shipping News, The For Carnation), and many, many more.

When Watter first appeared fully formed in 2014 as a trio featuring founding members of Grails and Slint, most assumed the mercurial group would vanish into the ether just like the foggy echoes of sound they crafted on their debut album, This World. Instead, they toured the US with their longtime friends in Om, and returned home to begin work on an ambitious new recording studio, from which their new album, History of the Future was born.

As with their first album, the songs on History of the Future evolved from many long days and nights of improvisation, experimentation, and collaboration. In many ways, the guests – which include, among others, Britt Walford (Slint), Dominic Cipolla (Phantom Family Halo, Torres), Rachel Grimes (Rachel’s), Bundy K. Brown (Tortoise), and Todd Cook (Shipping News, The For Carnation) – and the gear were as vital to the creative process as the core duo of Riles and multi-instrumentalist Tyler Trotter.

It is this exploratory nature that breathes life into Watter, and turns ephemeral into eternal.
