VOWWS is a band well known for pushing their own limits, crafting unique and memorable tracks and creating lasting impressions on fans and critics alike. With this new album, Under the World, VOWWS craft their dark pop masterpiece - a cinematic, stylish and menacing statement of intent.
Drawing upon influences as diverse as classic western folk, electronica, surf rock, alternative, and film music, the enigmatic duo weave disparate threads of cultural influence together into a tapestry of drama, imagination and surprising warmth.
Under the World was largely recorded with friend, mentor and engineer Kevin S. McMahon (Swans, Titus Andronicus) at his New Paltz, NY studio - building upon a symbiotic relationship formed while piecing together their debut, 2015’s The Great Sun.
This time around VOWWS took on a more prominent role in producing and mixing the record, but the timeless influence of McMahon and his weatherworn studio in a barn are still present. Under the World deliberately eschews any obvious Post-Punk and Industrial tropes, instead allowing space for its stylish hooks, direct vocals and rich textures to shine. It will be released on the band's own label, Anti-Language.
