As remarkable as their music is, Lowly only came together as a band in 2014, having met at the musical academy in Aarhus, Denmark. Despite all five members being involved in different studies, and having their own pre-existing endeavors, Nanna Schannong (lead vocals, guitar), Soffie Viemose (lead vocals, laptop), Kasper Staub (synthesisers), Thomas Lund (bass, Moog) and Steffen Lundtoft (drums, percussion) soon found common musical ground; a restlessly inventive and exquisitely melodic sound that refutes easy categorisation.

Early praise for Lowly…

“A remarkable debut, it doesn’t sound like anyone else, it sounds like Lowly, who on Heba are a band completely on top of their own game.” – 8.5/10 – The Line Of Best Fit

“a complex construct that through skill and magic sounds effortlessly sweet.” – 8/10 – Pop Matters

“Textured, imaginative soundscapes”– Interview

“an overwhelming onslaught of beauty” – Stereogum

“jazzy, soaring widescreen pop” – Brooklyn Vegan
