Fire on the Bright Sky - Low Lows

Fire on the Bright Sky - Low Lows

Monotreme Records

The Low Lows have arisen from the ashes of NYC dream pop band Parker & Lily. I have to whisper it quietly. I can’t quite believe what I am hearing. The ghost of Galaxy 500 haunts the grooves of this record. The mesh of melody and noise, the languid grace, blissed out chord progressions and dark undertows. Think the Velvet Underground drinking with Big Star. These songs hang suspended in heavenly reverb. PL Noon’s weary croak slides in-between the guitar storms and organ flashes. Restless, burnished, bruised and beautiful.
