New Release, Video & Tour: Lowly – Baglaens

With their second album Hifalutin due for release on 12th April via Bella Union, Lowly have shared a visually arresting video for their stunning single Baglaens, directed by Danish fashion designer Henrik Vibskov

Of the video, Lowly co–lead vocalist Soffie Viemose says: “Henrik Vibskov’s extrovert visual universe combined with Baglaens is a match made in heaven. We sent him the song and it came back as an explosion of colours and emotions, adding a whole new depth to the song that even we hadn’t discovered before now. We’re big admirers of Vibskov’s work and we’ve previously worked with him on stage clothing for some concerts. You rarely get emotional by watching patterns and colours but with Vibskov that’s exactly what happens. He has a way of putting a very strong human feel into every stroke and colour – which indeed is the case with this video”

“If you stick to just what you know, your music, your art or whatever your situation is becomes stagnant”, say Denmark’s Lowly. “And we wouldn’t like to miss out on anything, just because we felt too comfortable”

A band unafraid to reach beyond their comfort zone, Lowly thrive on the embrace of doubt and curiosity. An inquisitive spirit drives the quintet’s second album, which evolved from an open-ended process in large spaces, from lost factory halls to water towers. Released via Bella Union in April, Hifalutin brims with suggestive discoveries from its title onwards. Dictionary definitions include “pompous” and “larger than life”; the word is also antonymic with the word Lowly. However you take it, the result is the work of five people expressing themselves freely as a tight collective: focused, yet fertile with possibility
