New Band Up North: Low Duo
Each week, I dig through the sounds of the North, picking one artist or band I think you should take notice of. This week: Low Duo
Two brothers: one voice, one guitar. Their sound is raw, emotional and eerie. Vocals, which are full of tenderness, anger and love, meet a guitar that’s jangly, upset and just as aggressive.
It’s as if Low Duo’s music, full of pain and heartache, has been collected into a bottle, sealed and left in a cellar for a while. You can smell love, lost, regret and misery. You start to hear a guitar being strummed softly and a sad voice singing. It reeks of sadness but it’s beautiful too.
Now a spindly guitar backs a harrowing high-pitched voice. The voice and guitar inside your head gets louder, deeper and angrier. So, you’re thinking what’s she going on about? But that’s how Low Duo make me feel.
