With their new single, “Heartbreaker,” VOWWS (one of TML favorite new bands) veer into the wrong lane – and smash backwards into Pop. The new single was released earlier this week, coinciding with their North American tour in support of British post-punk band White Lies.
A flash-grenade of musical justice, “Heartbreaker” opens with the layered ramblings of a mad man – before exploding into an urgent groove of cascading beats, vertical guitars and a guiding, screaming synth – a musical offering that pummels you over the head with a sick smile on its face.
“We wanted this song to be a window into casual insanity. It’s war music for peaceful people cos when everything looks the same, it’s harder to choose,” says Matt.
Heartbreaker was produced by the duo and Rhys Fulber (Front Line Assembly, Fear Factory, Youth Code). Their second album, the follow up to 2015’s ‘The Great Sun,’ is due mid-2017.
The “Heartbreaker” cover art is by Los Angeles based artist Jesse Draxler.
