“Symbol System” Video Drops w/ Interview Magazine!
Self-Titled EP Out Now
“…a grinding tune, that takes cues from the likes of Bauhaus, The Cure, and things that go bump in the night.” – Under The Radar
“…discordant guitars, clanging piano, and shuffling beat.” – Interview Magazine
Australian duo VOWS crafts music fit for a seedy, underground dance club: infectious beats, grinding synths, and mechanistic, post-punk tinged guitar lines. Made up of Sydney natives Matt and Rizz, VOWS draws inspiration from film, literature, romance, and the pop culture the two grew up on. Now based in NYC, the duo just released their self-titled EP, which you can stream in full at MSN Music. It’s also available for purchase via iTunes and other digital retailers.
EP track “Symbol System” features discordant guitar melodies, buzzing synths, booming piano and an irregular electro beat that set an eerie mood of mystery and intrigue. Having recently shared the “Symbol System” MP3, the duo has now unleashed a video for the track. Featuring a dark, shadowing aesthetic that perfectly fits their sound, you can check out the “Symbol System” video where it premiered withInterview Magazine today or HERE, and we encourage you to post & share.
EP opener “Councillor” buzzes with electric energy, with layers of fuzzy synth and a heavy beat beneath melodic, intertwining vocals. “I Think I Remember” is led by catchy guitar lines and finds Matt and Rizz’s voices twisting and turning in perfect sync. The appropriately-titled “Ghost Years” is a slower, melancholic cut with a shadowy, haunting quality, while the atmospheric “Bones” closes out the EP with layers of swirling synth and a pulsating beat.
