Withdraw – Vow Music Review

Vow is an up-and-coming indie rock band from Los Angeles. The band originally was comprised of only Julia Blake (vocals) and Andrew Thomas (multi instrumentalist). After redirecting their synth-pop sound of their previous works to gear it towards rock, Julia and Andrew later added their friend Touché Amoré guitarist Nick Steinhardt to be the lead guitarist of the band.

Withdraw is Vow’s first single off of debut album “Kind Eyes”, which was just released today May 27th. The soft and relaxed vibes that radiate off of this song instantly transports the listener to a festival in the middle of a field with flower crowns and vans. Or it embodies a blissful drive on a California highway on a cloudless day.

Blake’s vocals are absolutely mesmerizing, leaving one in a hypnotic trance. It reminders me of a softer mix of Halsey and Lana Del Ray. Her voice may not be powerful in its loudness, but its soft and delicate nature creates a different kind of power. The mellow pounds of the drums and slow strums of the guitar echo in the background which creates the song’s trance.

Usually I don’t like indie rock, but I do like Withdraw. It may not be my favorite song that i will constantly listen to on repeat. But I can appreciate the artistic style and effort that goes into creating this specific sound.

Withdraw definitely is filled with intense emotion and feelings that can be felt in her voice provides some distinction from other indie rock bands.

It’s always refreshing to hear a girl’s voice in the alternative scene. Girls are so rare and make up the minority of the alternative genre. It’s crucial for them to be represented and I always love it when a female steps up to fill those spaces. One day a girl could see that female artists have a place in the scene and may feel more encouraged to do the same.

Love it or hate it, Vow may have the true potential to become something great, and it may come sooner than you think.
