Whether or not they’re crushing intimate Allston venues or touring with the likes of Chilly Cave or Poppy, VOWWS all the time ship the products. The Los Angeles-via-Australia digital energy duo stay a favourite for us on the V, and this previous Friday (Might 15) dropped a sinister growler of a brand new tune known as “Impulse Management.” It wraps a sonic sheet throughout your silly face and tightens up till you’re suffocated by Matt James and Rizz’s soiled model of death-pop.
The accompanying video was directed by Rizz and Jesse Draxler, filmed partially in LA’s Little Tokyo simply earlier than shelter-in-place orders swept the town. Our present dystopian local weather of paranoia and confusion is in full view as we sit indoors and watch the world sit idly on pause.
“It’s a novel time for humanity, the machine has stopped and we’re all in solitary having to take care of ourselves,” VOWWS declare. “There’s a number of nervousness that we are able to’t actually run from. Like everybody else, we’re processing an enormous shock and experiencing issues we’ve by no means handled earlier than. We’re grateful to have an outlet for a few of the angst, it appears like one of the simplest ways we are able to work via one thing this intense is to seize the sensation and signify it by some means. Plenty of the music got here out of nowhere, straight from the void most likely.”
