Hailing from Galway, and with a sound that can’t be tied down; Roisin Lowry is Lōwli: an exhilarating artist whose music marries ‘beautifully arranged melodies’ (Tony Clayton-Lea, Irish Times) with ‘haunting, angelic vocals’ (Hot Press).
Lōwli’s debut EP, Feathers, was produced by Christian Best (Mick Flannery, Jack O’Rourke) at Monique Studios. Its hibernal, otherworldly feel comes to life through Lōwli’s beguiling voice; and nearly a year on, is still a release to brace yourself for. Even so, Feathers is just the first taste of ‘a performer with a keen sense for the dramatic twists and turns’ (Jim Carroll).
Lowli’s forthcoming release, Cavalry, possesses all the qualities of its namesake: powerful, commanding, impactful. The neoclassical elements at play in her recent instrumental, Worlds Above Us, find further purpose as they interact with the wistfulness of Lowli’s voice for the first time. This voice is irrefutably unique, and unmistakably Lowli’s.
Inclusions on the Sounds From a Safe Harbour, Other Voices and Sofar Sounds lineups, and nods from several Ones to Watch listings are just the first steps in Lōwli’s journey: which is already proving to be an immensely exciting one.
