Fast Five: Lowla



How did you meet and what’s the story behind your band name?

We met at Lo’s when Lara came over to record vocals for another producer. We instantly clicked and decided to start working together. The name is a reflection of our names: Low(ith)La(ra)

How would you describe your music?

Varied. We’re from the generation of singles. We don’t tend to listen to an album. We listen to singles by various artists. And in fact that’s exactly what we’ve gone in for in our sound. It’s different and doesn’t get bogged down into a single genre. There’s a lot of variation and surprise across our first EP Walls. It’s not one sound or one genre. Every new song is slightly different, but all tracks retain our 90s vibe and influence. So it’s tied together by the era, but with different takes and angles on the sound.

What have you been up to so far and what can we expect over the coming months?

We’ve released a single and an EP so far. The EP Walls is brand spanking new and now available on iTunes. We’ve had some great reviews and feedback on it, which we’re very grateful for. Luck was on our side earlier this year when we got to play Sofar Sounds, so we’re hoping to play some more shows soon and kick off the year 2017 with some festival appearances. Expect to see lots of features too.

If you could duet with anybody who would it be and why?

Uff. Tough questions. There are loads of people we’d love to collab with or perform a duet with. Here are just a few: Dev Hynes, Grimes, Spice Girls, a resurrected Michael Jackson.

What’s your desert island disc and why would you take this one album?

An empty disc. We forgot to bring the record player. Oops
