We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Lower Automation’s lyric video for their song “Tethered” (watch it below). The track is taken from the band;s forthcoming Shoebox Companion EP, which is scheduled to be released on July 27, 2018.
Derek Allen of Lower Automation commented on the song & EP:
‘Tethered’ was started about two years ago when Brian came up with the opening riff. Everything else was gradually built from there. Lyrically, it’s inspired by any kind of relationship being impeded with distractions.
Most of the EP is inspired by interference in relationships and dealing with the anxiety it can cause. We recorded it ourselves and spent about 8 months practicing and nitpicking and making sure everything was just how we wanted it.
