Premiere EP from Bows.

Bows' newest single, "Shed a Tear", is meant to transport you, the listener, to a faraway place with the band's hallmark soundscapes. Featuring a blend of organic and synthesized sonic elements, the track serves as a stylistic bridge between earlier singles and the duo's forthcoming debut LP. According to songwriter/singer Kaila McIntyre-Bader, the new record (targeted for release in Q1 of 2016) will be a concept album telling the story of a post-apocalyptic space adventure and will draw on the band’s evolving use of motivic repetition and immersive sonic environments with a grounding in the catchy pop hooks that have been the mainstay of Bows all along.

Bows is the brainchild of Kaila McIntyre-Bader and Luke Bace, formerly of Brooklyn-born and SF based indie-pop group Big Tree. The duo was originally conceived out of circumstance: just before departing with Big Tree on a CMJ bound tour, McIntyre-Bader broke both of her elbows in a biking accident. The incident forced McIntyre-Bader to find alternative means to write and record new music while she recovered, leading to an exploration of many of the sonic fundamentals that now define Bows. Despite being born of unfortunate circumstance, the duo's short existence has already shown great promise; their first live performance was to a sold out crowd opening for Misterwives at the Independent in San Francisco, and their songs have already been placed on shows like MTV's "Finding Carter."

Track Name: Everywhere
Everywhere I go there's trouble
Everywhere I look it's doubled
Track Name: Not That Kind of Guy
Under oath I told a lie
Under me you felt just fine
Under God we made a bind
Unprepared we lost track of time
But I'm not that kind of guy

Long ago you asked me why
I got scared of what you'd find
Someone took what once was mine
I just want some piece of mind
But I'm not that kind of guy

Overhead there once was sky
Before I lost my alibi
I begged you not to be unkind
I should have told you, you were right
But I'm not that kind of guy

Oooh Oooh

Under oath I told a lie
Under me you felt just fine
Under God we made a bind
Unprepared we lost track of time
But I'm not that kind of guy
But I'm not that kind of guy
Track Name: Mechanical Man
Wake up to this strong brew
Don't beg, you don't have to
Be wise- I won't teach you
I hope that you'll follow through

The Mechanical Man

Beware of the bad news
Be good, I depend on you
Be strong, there's so much to do
Don't run when you know it's true

The Mechanical Man

I'm just waiting to be sure that you can make it
Just don't promise me if you can't take it
I will be alright if you just tell me honey
That you don't need anybody else but me

The Mechanical Man
Track Name: Shed a Tear
Don't shed a tear, shed a tear for me
Way out yonder in the golden field is where I found it
Singing praises to me
Because I can
