Lowly is a five-piece noise pop band from Denmark. They 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.
In the fall, Lowly released their EP "Sink Way Into Me" and the single "Fire" was described as "ABBA's Super Trouper remixed by Tame Impala's Kevin Parker" by Ed Nash from The Line Of Best Fit.
The music is at times intricate yet deep and sensual, the fascinating rhythms of drummer Steffen create 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 create 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 are a band of limitless possibilities.
Lowly is currently working on their debut album for Bella Union.

    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 create 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 create 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 are a band of limitless possibilities.

    October 30th, 2015 Lowly will release their EP Sink Way Into Me on British label Bella Union that includes the single Fire and will have a spacey video accompanying it.

    Lowly will be touring in the UK and Denmark in November. They are currently writing and recording for their debut album.
