Everywhere 03:35
Everywhere I go there's trouble Everywhere I look it's doubled
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
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
Shed a Tear 04:02
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


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."
