VOWS are a reminder of a time that never happened and probably never will.

Inspired more by film, literature and everyday life than music itself, VOWS' sound

somehow begins in your head, next to Bauhaus and your old Cure tapes, and

ends up in the club after everybody has left.

Matt and Rizz first met at College in their hometown of Sydney, Australia. After

becoming fixtures on the Sydney experimental music scene, the eternally

restless pair decided to ditch their hometown lives and headed for Los Angeles

where they shared a Hollywood studio apartment for 12 months. During this time

they worked in studios, played some shows, took odd random jobs and spent

as much time as possible piecing together what would become their inimitable

sound and style - somehow arriving at a mixture of confessional storytelling set

to club beats, grinding synths and mechanistic, post-punk tinged guitar lines, all

deceptively cloaked in pop.

In 2012 the pair relocated to New York City, where they are now based.
In weird ways, it reminds me of the parts of New York that don't really exist anymore; a Times Square full of sleazy theaters, a $2 show at Max's Kansas City with Patti Smith lackadaisically dancing and smoking in the front row or The NEW YORK DOLLS shopping for high heels in a vintage shop. Some of the slower moments remind me of TELEVISION. I'm not sure if this is what the band was going for at all but this is what I get out of it. It just sounds like punk before punk knew what it was supposed to sound like, if you catch my drift.” – Greg Harvester of Remote Outposts

Trepanning play an infectious set of synth and guitar garage punk, with lyrics ranging from Patty Hearst to a failed séance. –Deed Runlea of WFMU’s Distort Jersey City
