Great news – after reaching out to us and gaining coverage over on our blog in September, US-based indie-electronic artist The Cowls has joined the AT family and we’ll be releasing his debut, full length album soon.
The Cowls began as an indie rock collective and quickly evolved into a solo electronic project fronted by Damion Jurrens, a veteran of the NYC indie scene. Now based in California’s East Bay, Damion formed the Cowls in early 2018 and set out to reconcile his guitar-heavy indie rock past with his lifelong love of synthesizers and electronic music.
Combining notes of New Order, Depeche Mode, and Gary Numan with occasional flares of the Cure, My Bloody Valentine, and the Stone Roses, the Cowls’ restless aesthetic creates giddy blasts of hook-heavy indie-synthwave-pop that nods to its influences while creating a thoroughly modern sound.
For a taster, check out The Cowls’ recent, self-released EP Shake This over on Bandcamp.
