Lowly – “Prepare The Lake”

Lowly is a Danish quintet worth checking out. The group pairs smooth synthscapes with a skittering drumbeat and lilting female vocals, a winning combination in our book. Fans of Sylvan Esso, Phantogram, or Feist will dig Lowly’s vibes. Keep your eyes open for Lowly’s debut, Deba, due out 2/10.
