With the likes of Jack Saunders and Jess at BBC Radio 1, Radio X, 6Music's Steve Lamacq and Tom Robinson already praising their work of late, fast-rising outfit Low Girl have now unveiled their stunning debut EP 'Big Now'.
Channelling a smooth and captivating dream-pop direction throughout, 'Big Now' makes for a wonderfully vibrant introduction to their sound. Filled with tranquil tones, soaring production, and some truly blissful songwriting throughout, these guys are firmly set to take the world by storm in the coming months.
So with the new EP available now, we sat down with their frontwoman Sarah to find out more about her origins and what has inspired her most over the years.
What was the first instrument you fell in love with?
Definitely the piano! My grandma has a really old upright piano from 1931, and it has the muddiest, softest tone that I just fell in love with.
What kind of music did you love when you were younger?
When I was really little it would've been McFly. I had one of their cd's permanently in my Walkman on the way to school.
What was the first album you remember owning?
Oh god, embarrassingly again it would've been the Mcfly red nose day special...
What is the one song you wished you could have written yourself?
I Know The End by Phoebe Bridgers. I get goosebumps every time I listen to it.
Do you have any habits or rituals you go through when trying to write new music?
I kind of shut myself away from other people for a bit. If I start something, I'll be on the piano or guitar until I've finished writing it - which can be pretty inconvenient if I have other things I need to do!
Who are your favourite artists you have found yourself listening to at the moment?
Phoebe Bridgers, Perfume Genius, King Princess, Still Woozy and Brockhampton.
If you could open a show for anyone in the world, who would it be?
It would be a dream to open for someone like Clairo or Cavetown if we were their kinda vibe but I can't imagine the level of imposter syndrome I'd feel!
What do you find is the most rewarding part about being a musician?
It’s all about that moment where I've fully expressed my negative feelings in a song to the point where I feel a bit lighter afterwards. Playing it with the boys in the band is the next step and I just enjoy their company so much. It's fun to get to do all this stuff with your best buds.
And what is the most frustrating part?
Pre-show nerves for sure! That, and also trying to navigate getting to and from gigs while juggling our jobs…
And what is the best piece of advice you have received as a musician?
That my weaknesses can be my strengths. For example, I really struggle with anxiety, but part of the vulnerability this makes me feel can enhance my writing and performance.
