NJ's Vows conjure up noir dreams + plays Cake Shop tomorrow (05.10)

NJ's Vows conjure up noir dreams + plays Cake Shop tomorrow (05.10)

Vows is the electronic project of four New Jersey based musicians from Somerset County - yes we cover the NJ scene that far. But wait... it's also the name of an electronic band from Brooklyn! May the law suit begin! Anyway, we covered the Brooklyn guys a bunch of times already, so it's time to focus on their NJ colleagues. Even though in their bandcamp profile's tags Vows label themselves as "Dream Pop", their music features a philosophic aura and a subtle creepiness that fits with the word "dream" but kind of fights with the notion of "pop" - we think they should rather find a label with the word "noir" in it. Their debut came out in 2011, but after two years without output, the band seems to have found new inspiration in 2013, which led to the release of full length "Stranger Things" that same year, and then already three singles and two EPs in 2014!!! 

We are digging this song from their February 2014 single "Ride This Out" - check it out below. By the way, Vows will NOT be playing live at Cake Shop tomorrow night (05.10) - that's the other Vows...
