Layers of distorted sound accrete with each new verse - building, breaking, colossal then restrained, a solemn vow only whispered. There will be time to unravel and attribute meaning to the music and art of these times, but the creative moment looks FORWARD, with teeth.
HEY WHAT is Low's thirteenth full length release in twenty seven years, and their third with producer BJ Burton.
"It is a beautiful, adventurous album from a band who is letting their music fall into disorder and who, in doing so, have never sounded more in control." –Sam Sodomsky (Pitchfork)
"Low’s last album, 2018’s Double Negative, was a total reinvention 25 years into a virtually undented career – a staggering achievement for any band. Yet somehow Alan and Mimi Sparhawk transcended it with this follow-up HEY WHAT, bridling its predecessor’s swashbuckling noise until it splintered, and contrasting it with electronic reimaginings of the forlorn atmospherics that made their name." - The Guardian
