With their last album "Double Negative", the slowcore pioneers Low took a completely new path. The distorted beauty of their songs not only set a striking counterpoint to the smoothly polished Instagram world of our days, but also to the defeatism of current noise productions. There was no mention of Corona and Lockdown at the time, but Low seemed to anticipate events in their music. Now, the new album "Hey What" continues the dualism of "Double Negative" under a completely different premise. "We live in a distorted society," explains guitarist and singer Alan Sparhawk.
The times in which Low were called the "slowest band in the world" are long gone because of their records which have become more and more multi-faceted in recent years. On the one hand, it is to be welcomed that the trio constantly broadened its horizon. On the other hand, the latest albums became more and more popular. "Ones And Sixes" on the other hand sounds in parts like a return to early masterpieces like "Things We Lost In The Fire".
