AVA MENDOZA UNNATURAL WAYS TRIO

September/ October 2017

Unnatural Ways is the main project of Brooklyn-based guitarist Ava Mendoza.
Besides playing countless local NY shows, throughout 2014-17 the current UW lineup toured the U.S., Canada and Europe surrounding festival performances at the Victoriaville Festival in Canada and the Moers Festival in Germany. Over the course of these shows the band developed a deeply personal sound; raw, heavy, and futuristic. Drawing from noise rock, metal and free jazz, the players push the boundaries of their own vocabularies and of the written songs music to put on powerful and unpredictable live shows. Their self-titled LP was issued in April 2015 by the New Atlantis label (William Hooker, Upsilon Acrux, Microwaves, Elliott Sharp). Their second release, We Aliens, was released on John Zorn’s Tzadik label in August 2016.
