Lower is a four piece band from Copenhagen consisting of Adrian Toubro (vocals), Anton Rothstein (drums), Kristian Emdal (bass) and Simon Formann (guitar). Everyone with interest in the current Copenhagen underground would recognize Lower as partakers of what has been referred to as “the new wave of Copenhagen”, a small environment of friends consisting of a lot of genre bending projects drawing on everything from punk, synth wave, rock, industrial & experimental music. However, to present Lower only in the light of this “Wave”, that they are supposedly partakers in, would not do the band justice.
Lower has so far released two 7”s, “Walk on Heads” and “Someone’s Got It in for Me/But There Has to Be More”, both on the danish label Escho and on the American labels Blind Prophet and 540. The music of Lower is difficult to describe with genre terms, where a part of their energy definitely could be categorized with punk, the emotional palette they work with far surpasses the average idea of punk music’s aggression.
With a chance of sounding dramatic, one could argue that the closed fists of punk music has been set aside for pen and paper. The energy is morose and first and foremost; well thought. Here it would make sense to debate the environment they come from, that they all are or have been involved in many different projects and crossing many different genres, thus the musical references to be found in their music is many and often one does not have a logical link from one to the other.
The sound is dramatic, but instead of being introverted and unsure, it is courageous and proud.
