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.

New Music: Low Lying Sun

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.”
