Bowmont - Interview about Gear and the Creative Process

Bowmont is a Brooklyn based trio that's been delivering beautifully textural and atmospheric synth-pop since the beginning of the decade. It has the luck of having a GRAMMY award winning engineer among its ranks (Jeremy Loucas), who also happens to be obsessed with synths.  The two other members, Danish lead vocalist Emil Bovbjerg, and German guitarist Elias Meister, are accomplished musicians who also share a passion for musical toys. We can't think of a better band for a Delicious Audio interview about gear and the creative process. (Photo by Fabrizio Del Rincon)



Bowmont Plays BAM café Live + unveils new remix for “Just Cause You’re Right”

The original version of Brooklyn synth-pop collective Bowmont’s song “Just Cause You’re Right,” off of their 2014 released EP 'Hovering,' had a uniquely warped quality to the pulsating synth sequence. Although very much a pop song through its vocal presentation, a rather unpredictable structure kept the listener engaged. The band now released a stunning remix of this track, moving it closer to the environs inhabited by the likes of Swedish electro masters The Knife. With DJ/Producer Rasmus Vestervig handling the remix under his 99 Blows nom de plume (the guy is also a celebrated guitarist in a number of bands), an intoxicating blend of sparse percussive pulses share open spaces with deep bass synth notes. When Emil Bovbjerg’s vocals ultimately emerge to tell a tale of loss and heartache (“if you ever come back to this street, I’m going to change the locks on the door”) they are propelled forward by bright high-hat cymbal percussion and bubbling synths. In addition to this new release, the band will play a free show at BAMcafé Live on Saturday, April 11th at 9pm. - Dave Cromwell


Booked at CMJ: Bowmont unveils video for Hovering + plays Glasslands on 11.13

Bowmont ended up on our CMJ 2014 Electronic Stage at Pianos at the last minute, and we couldn't have been happier to have them, since their put on a great show. The band has coined a very personal, moody brand of pop that could be defined impressionistic, if not pointillistic: it's as if their songs emerged from silence like a sonic mosaic created by the combination of many tiny fragments of sound. The quartet just unveiled this video for their song "Hovering," featuring Shilpa Ray (who also played at Pianos that night on our Indie Stage). Check it out below and don't miss them when they play live at (soon to be closing) Glasslands on 11.13 with like minded Brooklynites Mon Khmer. -  Photo by Fabrizio Del Rincon
