It’s been a long road to Vow’s debut album. After two EPs released in quick succession, Vow slowed down and took nearly a year and a half to write what would become their debut full-length LP. Without any real direction in mind, but with the mindset of leaving the synths and drum machines behind, Vow set out to reshape their sound. The songs they would begin demoing were their most energetic yet, and more than anything, raw.
Resembling indie rock more than the synth-pop of their former life, Andrew and Julia recruited their close friend, sometimes collaborator, and Touché Amoré guitarist Nick Steinhardt as a permanent addition to the band. “Withdraw” is the first single from Vow upcoming debut album (out this Spring), and a very balanced representation of where the band arrived in with the new direction.
“Withdraw” also marks the first entry in our Private Press series. Pressed on made-to-order hand-numbered square 7” lathes, “Withdraw” was only on sale for a one week period.
