Bio

If you like your music loud, dynamic and inventive then the meaty tones of BoWsER will scratch your itchy soul. A tight, prolific unit — their crunchy, volcanic, riff-driven rock has been continually evolving since their inception. In 2019, the band are emerging from a deeply creative hiatus with new music from their long awaited sophomore release, ‘Whispers From The Wickerman’.

BoWsER churn out rock music the way it’s meant to be. It has an apocalyptic intelligence, hitting as hard as city concrete and drawing comparisons to such Goliath’s as QOTSA and Them Crooked Vultures along the way. Their songs are not easily forgotten, colliding unapologetically with any ears fortunate enough to receive them.

Rewind several years and the talents of Nathan Williams, Otto Mitter Jr and Brad Weynton first come together as BoWsER. The connection was instant. Here were three artists with the ability to pull each other in new directions, to make music that was ingenious and original. It has since been a continual musical evolution of these firm friends who grew up playing music together under the Gold Coast sun.

Their trajectory has been nothing short of intriguing. After releasing their debut mini- album 'Modus Operandi’, Drum Media declared: “These kids have the chops. Two years and they’ll be spitting fire. Six songs so full of ideas all over in barely over 15 minutes just aren’t enough.” Hand selected by Triple J Unearthed to support Eagles of Death Metal on their Australian tour they were also finalists in both the Rock Category and The Courier-Mail People’s Choice Award at the Q Song Awards.

Brilliant and promising in the earlier years, their music has continued to develop behind the scenes to create work of exceptional quality. ‘Whispers From The Wickerman’ will be unveiled in 2020. This collection of gritty crunch rock produced by acclaimed UK/Australian producer Steve James, will affirm the welcome return of BoWsER.
