Bio

Low Key Crush is Taycian, Tim and Ella. They deal in dream and jangle pop, place melodies as the highest moral good and work within the confines of Lo-fi production until enough money has been stored away in the band kitty. Their style is soothing but not boring, best played while driving or seen live with the last person you kissed. The lyrics often have a sense of being unresolved, sometimes revelling in the uncertainty other times struggling in it. Low Key Crush understands that a pop band is incomplete without harmonies and that love is always the best thing to have a song about. Their debut single ‘Swimming Laps’ was played on Triple J, put on rotation at Sydney’s FBi and made Unearthed’s Best New Music Spotify playlist.

The band’s beginnings lie in Ella and Tim’s friendship and collaborations over the years. Having met on a beach in South Gippsland many moons ago they have since played and sang together on Tim’s solo music project, an ambitious attempt at recreating Gillian Welch’s Time (The Revelator) note for note, and most recently in setting the foundations for LKC. Taycian was discovered through a friend of a friend and joined in for a jam as somewhat of a musical blind date. The chemistry was immediate and within a few months they were booking headline shows.

flicking through old polaroids with this on in the background and getting a bit emotional.

Damn, you've got one here. It's very inviting indie-pop with an attention to details that never distracts from the mood.

A beautiful love spell. "She likes pets more than people", "how can I tell her why she's on my mind, when she's on my mind", are just SOME of the best lines in this. You need to listen to this if you haven't already. It's sharp and sparkly. It'll leave you dazzling.
