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.
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
