Low Island are one of those bands that sum up the feeling of late night driving. Fusing together electronic and acoustic waves to create a jangly yet emotive sounds, Low Island explore the beautiful side of loss. Named after a small rock in the Atlantic they are fans of Arthur Russell, Warpaint, Grizzly Bear and Caribou. Tonight in concert at Razzmatazz.
The four-piece who are all in their early twenties have a broad palette and draw inspiration from a variety of tasteful sources. They use intelligent dance music production techniques to add engaging psychedelic flourishes and hypnotic rhythms, which vigour to what would otherwise be a brittle tender piece.
In terms of their indie sensibilities, Oxford newcomers Low Island draw inspiration from Radiohead, Grizzly Bear, and Arthur Russell.
