Bow Ribbons is the Brooklyn duo of Willow Gibbons (vocals) and Pete Vogl (guitar, vocals).
"..A powerful yet un-imposing union between guitar and voice, keys a unique presence that is indicative of Bow Ribbons as both multi-timbral and able minimalist. As alchemically elusive as it is self-confessing — these polarities are much like the sinuous phantoms that glide throughout Bow Ribbons songs.
..Bow Ribbons is timeless music, for it acknowledges what existed before the embellishments that held the greater half of a century and consequently our habitude in dressing up the song.
This does not mean that their music lacks production or pause. The warmth and tonal breadth of Pete’s guitar work is rousing by way of its subtleties. These songs remind us that space is not a listless vacuum, but instead what lies between is where the Bells Ring out, where the needle is thread through the fabric, where we are reminded to sigh, where we might reflect on a notes absence.
At the edge, before the great dip into the void, theres the sense that we are standing with our noses at the tip of a flame or the iciest frost. One might see a flash. One may listen and hear silence as though it was the very first time doing so. Its any number of these things that make Bow Ribbons stand out in noble eloquence." -Nicky Mao
