Bio

Melbourne’s Tyler Millott - aka The Terrifying Lows - has been revelling in the release of his captivating debut single Cool With It, a striking effort from the in-demand instrumentalist.

“A grungey pop sensation” - Red Bull Music

“Powered by a devil may care guitar riff, and populated with an equally as carefree level of fuzz, ‘Cool With It’ is a worthy offering to the gods of grunge.” - Music Feeds

Centred on the twin pillars of Millott’s thudding electric guitar and his nonchalant gift for a gum-sticky melody; this is power pop with an unhurried, sensitive edge. It’s a style the singer-songwriter has honed for his own over his time as bass player for Melbourne artist Ali Barter, as well as recording and/or touring with Gretta Ray, Husky and Ben Wright Smith.

Now, The Terrifying Lows continues to explore the bounds of his music with explosive sophomore single Comet. Produced by Dave Turner (Delta Riggs/Ben Wright Smith), mixed by Oscar Dawson (Holy Holy) and featuring guest backing vocals from Saskwatch’s Nkechi Anele, the aptly-named release explores themes of unrequited love through an obsessive first person narrative. “…and I know you might think that I’m crazy but I see the signs, I’ve been thinking lately that if you were mine, I would be better for you” Millott croons, before erupting into a meteoric chorus: “Love like a comet, baby you got it, reignite my lonely life, if only you knew I would be better for you”.

You're definitely playing it cool on this one. It's grungey but brighter than expected.
