Lowlands is an American music group based in New York City/San Diego, CA. Formed in NYC in 2014 by guitarist T.C. Garcia and vocalist Gabriel Spatuzzi, Lowlands play slow, dark, minimalist ghost-punk that draws inspiration from the likes of Rowland S. Howard and Ennio Morricone.
Recorded in fits and starts on two different coasts throughout 2014-2015, their debut album, Lovers Blessings, is characterized by sparse, droning arrangements and wistful, mostly ad-libbed lyrics that touch on themes of loneliness, isolation, architecture, sexual frustration and all forms of doubt (religious, self, etc.). Listen to it now in full below, prior to its release on October 14th through Thrill Me Records.
Lowlands will host their record release show at Soda Bar in San Diego, CA tonight, October 12th. RSVP to the Facebook event page here. Catch the band on tour with True Widow (see dates below).
