VOWS (or the band formerly known as POLOLOUNGE) had started the year as a five piece, but mutated into six (6) members. They fuse “vivid and personal lyrics” with a “sharp, but raw” sound that comes from an attuned motivation to beckon any crowd willing; to dance to the beat of a cowbell.
Hailing from the Midlands, VOWS are the result of an experiment with complex arrangements, mixed with knife sharp guitar lines and filtered through with a pop sensibility. Their influences have helped to shape, but not define their erudite angular pop that aims for the heart as well as the feet.
VOWS are: Lee Timms (lead guitar), Jack Finch (vocals), James Hargrave (bass guitar), Jack Carver (percussion), Ben Riley (rhythm guitar) and are rounded out by new member Adnaan Bhamla (synths, keys).
They’ve shared a stage with MONA at Coventry’s Kasbah, Various Cruelties, Brazil's CSS and soon Spector.
VOWS make a point of experimentating with the varied influences they've grown up with rather than to immitate them. It is this fresh perspective that has driven them to where they are now and will continue to fuel their advances into the future.
