Buzz Bands LA Premiere Vow's Music Video for "Charm" Posted 08 Aug 2014


The people at Buzz Bands LA just premiered the new music video for "Charm"! The song comes off the Make Me Yours 12"EP/ Digital EP, out this Tuesday. Here's what they had to say:

“Make Me Yours,” the second EP of pop noir from L.A. duo Vow, comes out next week, and the dark “Charm,” a song about personal and emotional transparency, is one of its most rapturous meditations. Vow’s principals, singer Julia Blake and multi-instrumentalist Andrew Thomas, wanted to keep it simple in conceiving a video for the song, and they called upon Ryan Sanders — the man behind Touché Amoré “Harbor” video — to direct. “All we wanted was something colorful and visually pleasant,” the duo says. “No cheesy concept or plot, just pleasant and fitting. It had to visually match the mood of this song and we feel he hit the nail on the head with that.” “Make Me Yours” features contributions from Touché Amoré guitarist Nick Steinhardt and comes out via the Native Sound.

Pre-order Make Me Yours on vinyl, and receive and instant download of the entire EP before anyone else. Pre-order on iTunes for an instant download of "Charm". Click here to watch the video.

Clash Magazine Premiere Vow's Cover of Lana Del Rey's "Pretty When You Cry" Posted 30 Jul 2014

The good people at CLASH magazine premiered Vow's new cover of Lana Del Rey's "Pretty When You Cry" today! 

"Julia Blake isn’t imitating Lana’s breathy tones; rather, her delivery is more upfront, more confident, more defiant. It twists the emotional heart of the song slightly – more aggressive than before, a snap of violence from a spell of stillness. Still bruised, but unafraid. The reworked arrangement from multi-instrumentalist Andrew Thomas puts us in mind of the Drive soundtrack – it’s easy to imagine this cover appearing alongside some slow-motion Winding Refn cinematography, a la something by Oregon’s own Chromatics."

Vow's Lana Del Rey cover comes ahead of their Make Me Yours 12"EP/ Digital EP, out August 12th. Pre-order the limited edition vinyl at our webstore, and the digital EP at iTunesAmazon, and Bandcamp.

The good people at Entertainment Weekly just premiered a new song off Vow's upcoming Make Me Yours EP, "Planks"! Entertainment Weekly calls it "a contemporary update to the gothy ambience and gauzy textures of ’80s and ’90s dream-pop".

Along with the premiere, we're also excited to announce that the Make Me Yours will be available on August 12th as both a digital download, and limited edition 12” vinyl record. Make Me Yours finds the band transitioning from the darker textures of their debut, to more Cocteau Twins-inspired dynamics, implementing chorus-drenched guitars/bass, and palpable pop-informed vocal melodies. As with their debut, the EP will again feature Touché Amoré guitarist, and one-half of Andrew's ambient guitar duo, Wife, Nick Steinhardt on guitar. Steinhardt, who interestingly enough introduced Andrew and Julia to each other, also took charge of all visual aspects relating to the band's EP.

Digital download delivered to your inbox at least one week before the release date
