Creating something organic from digital tools is a difficult undertaking, particularly when it comes to music. Artists such as Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails and most recently Muse have perfected the illusion, but showing a great deal of potential is Today the Moon, Tomorrow the Sun. With frontwoman Lauren Gibson's femininely dark vocals at the forefront, supported by layers of fuzz-filled guitars, synthesizers and electronic underpinnings, this Atlanta-based quartet maintains a grungy dance vibe throughout its budding catalog of tunes. On the road in support of its latest EP, “Heavy Champions,” the band's set to play Plaza Bowl on Friday, May 7, at 8 p.m. 233-8799.
