Picking up from last month’s “Why Lowly are great” series, a quick look at one of the singles from their 2017 full-length debut Heba. It occurs to me that between this and “Stones In The Water”, I may be misrepresenting the band a bit as these tracks are decidedly more uptempo than much of their material, but honestly if you dig these you’re not going to be all, “where is the rock?!?”. At least I’d hope not.
I don’t pretend to be someone who understands drums from a technical/musical perspective, but am comfortable saying that Lowly’s drummer Steffen Lundtoft Jensen is the band’s secret weapon. His rhythms are steady and understated, but also wonderfully intricate and fascinating to focus on as you play their songs on repeat. Which you should.
Next time, something from 2019’s Hifalutin.
