British outfit Low Lying Sun are back today with a self-titled single that started it all for these much-hyped indie rockers.
On ‘Low Lying Sun’, captivating vocals drift across an atmospheric soundscape that feels haunting, melancholic and beautifully emotive.
“‘Low Lying Sun’ was the first song we wrote together as a band. We were messing around writing and the song came together really quickly and laid down the foundations of what we wanted the band to sound like. Once we’d written a few more songs we were trying to think of a name for the project and it felt right that we should be named after the seminal track.”
The track is lifted from the band’s forthcoming ‘Did You Mean It?’ EP (out 17th Feb), which follows on from last year’s critically praised debut record ‘Hymn To Say Goodbye’.
Low Lying Sun are Michael Hemmings, Ross Connell, Matt Chan and Noah Booth.
Rising British outfit Low Lying Sun are back with a euphoric slice of indie-rock that might well be one of your weekend anthems.
‘Heaven Knows’ finds the Essex-based four-piece delivering a stadium-friendly and rousing sound that is not only energising in it’s character, but also carries with it meaningful lyricism.
“‘Heaven Knows’ is about a question, a hypothetical. The song is epitomised with the line ‘Why did it end in love?’. It’s about running the scenario through in your head as to whether or not you should fully let something in when it rears its head again. You can either engage with it or not and both of those options are hard to take. If you just felt hate or anything less than love, then the decision would be easy but instead you are left with this dilemma.”
Since the release of their debut EP‘Hymn To Say Goodbye’ earlier this year, Low Lying Sun have gone on to pick up acclaim from countless tastemakers like BBC Introducing, CLASH and Wonderland, while also accumulating over 160k streams on Spotify alone.
Another week comes by and sure enough, we have another outstanding British indie-rock track to introduce. This time it’s from Low Lying Sun, who have been aptly described as ‘the band for the wedding and the wake’.
With early support from the likes of BBC Introducing, CLASH and Record of the Day, this Essex-based group elegantly blend indie melancholy with a raucous, anthemic rock energy. On the visuals for their new single ‘Car Crash’, they say:
“For the ‘Car Crash’ video we tried to play with the idea of impending tragedy. The characters in the video exist in some kind of purgatory, still embracing whilst accompanied by the frantic imagery of the band. We wanted to create a sense of confusion, feeding the viewer snippets of the story to build anticipation, much like the song itself.”
The band play London’s The Lexington on 14th April as part of the Communion New Music Night.
Essex-based group Low Lying Sun create a breathtaking and anthemic style of indie-rock that feels emotive, epic and intense.
“‘Hymn To Say Goodbye’ is about realising a relationship isn’t going to work, but you still love them and so it’s hard to make sense of it. It’s an ambitious grief, you’re both still there but what you had is gone. It’s a tragedy; like burning a masterpiece, it feels like armageddon. You try to move on without hurting the other person so you yourself, but you want them to know they are still important to you.”
