It’s just shy of a year since we last heard from emerging indie band Low Girl. Back in March 2021, the four-piece released their proactive synth-forward indie-rock track ‘Big Now’, which was also supported by British broadcasting big guns BBC Radio 1, BBC 6Music and Radio X. Following their Big Now EP release, they also sold out their first London headline show at The Lexington, played Reading & Leeds festivals, and supported both Dream Wife and The Murder Capital.
Riding that wave of recent successes, the group is back with new single ‘So Cool’ from their upcoming EP. Low Girl continues to explore feelings of loneliness, self-worth and mental health, exacerbated by that classic tale of chasing someone unattainable.
“There was a girl I liked who really knew how to switch it on and off, flirting and then recoiling. I’d end up feeling pretty disorientated, trying to maintain some sense of composure and resolve but failing miserably. I knew none of it was good for me, but my tendency to be self-destructive made it inevitable.”
You can sense the struggle within Low Girl‘s melancholic vocals and self-doubting lyrics, “I’m not good at ever finding answers.” Her placid vocals push against the forceful tide of tumultuous synths, drums and guitars, which represent the “push and pull” chaos that unrequited admiration brings into one’s life.
Not only can we massively relate to ‘So Cool’, but it’s another indie-pop gem loaded with sincere emotion and bright melodies that further verifies why Low Girl is one to keep an eye on this year.
