Lowly appeared out of nowhere in April 2014 with the release of the bewitching ‘Daydreamers’ The sound, already so rich and full, was like being put under a magical spell.
Initially brought together- in hindsight I’d suggest by a visionary alchemist-purely to fulfil part of a short music project at the school they all attended, Nanna, Thomas, Steffen, Kasper and Soffie immediately found the chemistry so many musicians search years to find.
The individual influences of each, so different it seemed to begin with, truly give Lowly that unique sound, one that has been developing over the course of the last year. Recent shows and festivals have been received ecstatically and we were lucky enough to witness one of those performances at Spot Festival earlier this year. Quite simply, Lowly are one of the best young bands i have seen live in a long time. The music is at times intricate yet deep and sensual, the fascinating rhythms of drummer Steffen a perfect counterpoint to the gorgeous melodies of Soffie and Nanna. The overall effect of this in tandem with the liquid bass and keyboard lines creates a set that has you on the verge of crying and dancing all at the same time. There isn’t a band out there today like them, which is thrilling. To make music that is both emotional and influential at this early stage, shows that Lowly a band of limitless possibilities.
“Lowly make lush, confident pop, layering traditional textures over less orthodox sounds, topped off with crystalline vocals… A rather beautiful debut.” Uncut – 8/10
