Bio

Formed in Canberra in early 2016, the Lowlands write cleared-eyed, bittersweet folk songs. Coloured by the trio's love of jazz and blues, their music is for drinking to, dancing to, or when you feel like you've got the rough end of the pineapple.

'Release Me' is the first single off their self-titled EP. Released in December 2016, it was recorded by Ben Moore at Harvest Recordings, and features James Hunt (Maddy Jane and the Janes) on lead guitar.

On a couple of listens, this song is already giving me the shivers. Ella's vocals paint a grim True Detective-esque painting of the Australian landscape. By the mid-song guitar solo I'm already drawn into the song's beautiful dystopian reality. One of my favourite songs to come out of Canberra in 2016!
