Vowws: Forget Your Finery

5.11.17



Australian darkwave duo, Vowws, will be releasing their new album next February. Forget Your Finery is the new single and video off it, a track which clearly exhibits the duo's evolved sound. Vowws come forward with a more straightforward mindset, relatively more accessible but still owning the dark properties that have made the band one of the most distinguished fresh acts in the darkwave/industrial scene.

On the visuals' front, Forget Your Finery marks one more time the LA-based duo is associated with visual artist, Jesse Draxler, whose previous work includes collaborations with Zola Jesus, Chelsea Wolfe and Black Queen, while outside the world of music the artist has worked on commissioned pieces for The New York Times and Alexander McQueen.

Both band members offer some great insight on their forthcoming music and new single. "Writing these songs was torturous. I hate when people say that cos I'm like, well stop doing it - but we can't stop. We aim to write pop music with angst. Songs that have emotional depth but would also crush in the next Terminator film," says Rizz, and Matt adds: "Forget Your Finery is one of the most immediate songs on the new record. This time round we wanted to add more elements of different styles & sounds, and go beyond what we did for The Great Sun. We’ve always loved surf-rock, grunge, western, pop... we love mixing elements of our favorite influences, while still trying to make it sound like nothing else."
