Singles Club: VOWWS + Snowball ii + Here Lies Man

Consider Singles Club your musical matchmaker. I do hope you'll give all these ready to mingle bachelors and bachelorettes your ear as you listen to some new favorite tunes. Read on in the hopes of finding your musical love connection.

The latest single from transplanted Aussie duo VOWWS, "Heartbreaker," recalls some of Depeche Mode's dreamiest darkness, with a hint of the industrial gnawing at the edges of the glamourous gloom. Make sure you catch VOWWS on their tour with White Lies, landing in DC 2/1.

  


Music lovers of a certain age will appreciate Snowball ii's nod to the clamorous indie of the 1990s. The brainchild of Jackson Wargo, this LA product is full of frolicsome "oohs" and jaunty guitar tomfoolery, while also delivering a dynamite lo-fi noise. A firecracker of a song, "Groan's" is highly recommended. 





Like GOAT partying on the darker side of the Moon, Here Lies Man brings together black magic beats with a fearsome central riff. Founder Marcos Garcia of Antibalas here indulges in some fantastically compelling sonic contortions.
