Low have been making warm, harmonic music since the early ’90s. Their songs are often inspired by their personal lives, as the band told us in a profile anticipating their upcoming album Ones And Sixes. We’ve already shared “What Part Of Me” and “No Comprende,” the first two singles off the album. And now they’ve shared “Lies,” which finds Alan Sparkhawk and Mimi Parker composing sonically beautiful symmetry. The dim tone is enveloped in a cloak of hazy vibration, topped off with Sparkhawk and Parker’s soothing vocals. It’s the kind of song that you can play over and over when you just need to be by yourself and recharge. Listen and absorb the melancholy.
Ones And Sixes is out 9/11 on Sub Pop.
