With their new album, Under the World, VOWWS craft their dark pop masterpiece - a cinematic, stylish and menacing statement of intent. Drawing upon influences as diverse as classic western, electronica, surf rock, metal, and film music, the enigmatic duo weave disparate threads of cultural influence together into a tapestry of drama, imagination and surprising warmth - only to deconstruct them again in front of your ears. Under the World was largely recorded with mentor and engineer Kevin S. McMahon at his New Paltz, NY studio - building upon a symbiotic relationship formed while piecing together their 2015 debut. This time around VOWWS took on a more prominent role in producing and mixing the record, but the timeless influence of McMahon and his weather-worn New Paltz studio/barn is still present. Under the World deliberately eschews any obvious post-punk and industrial tropes, instead allowing space for its stylish hooks, direct vocals and rich textures to shine.
