History[edit]

Following the dissolution of his former band Long Fin Killie, multi-instrumentalist Luke Sutherland formed Bows with the Danish singer Signe Høirup Wille-Jørgensen.[1][2] Specializing in a kind of lush trip hop with grand arrangements, the band have met with some critical success.

The band's debut album, Blush, was released in 1999 to generally positive reviews.[3][4][5]

Second album Cassidy followed in 2001.[6][7][8]
